Isolated Object 5
DIMENSIONS 12" x 9" MEDIUM Monoprint on paper
Unique work from series of 7, 2018
Signed and dated en verso
Sarah Faux is known for her expressive canvases that address the abstract nature of sensory experience, specifically in intimate and sexual moments. She notes that "each piece begins with a private moment... but unlike many depictions of feminine forms, the women on these canvases are resistant to your gaze, their bodies fragmenting as spontaneously as they've coalesced. When you fall in love, you might want to consume your lover, to possess them, but you never can. They will always contain unknowable parts. Paintings are like that too, worlds that we can't quite grasp."
In our new series Isolated Objects 1-7, Faux has created a series of seven unique monoprints on paper. Moments of clarity - fingers and faces - arise in washes of color and line, yet easily slide back into ambiguous shapes and forms. The viewer is given a refuge to dwell in betweens, outside the need for definition.
Each piece is unique and was created by the artist in her Brooklyn, NY studio.
