Mutual Betrayal, Barbara Farber Gallery, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 1993

“In Fabian's art, painting deliberately creates itself as the shambles its mockers claim it to be. Painting betrays itself, sacrifices its claims to purity, nobility, seriousness. Technical mastery places itself at the service of pictorial clumsiness, conceptual rigor dead-ends in a visual short-circuit, artistic ambition disperses itself in a kind of art-about­-art commentary whose convolutions make nonsense of their ostensible subject.” - Barry Schwabsky
