The subject for Satis represents an exotic woman with a seemingly cool personality. At first look, Gottlieb’s model appears relaxed in her wrapped kimono, however, the casualness of her robe can also be suggestive. The colors in this painting—cool blues and hot reds—heighten the sense of duality.
“Gottlieb’s personal fascination with interpreting ephemeral, yet deep, thoughts as a form of poetic idealism in painting prompts a distinct art language that merges the worlds of Realism and Impressionism. By applying the classical skills of the Old Masters, his contemporary subjects are given an enigmatic and timeless appeal.”
