Nude female on fiberglass with newspaper.
Faun's work over the last several years has focused on exploring figurative
narrative while utilizing mixed media in order to create texture in painting and
drawing. Color and form translate content, thereby revealing the multiple
facets of female identity in the context of the sacred and the secular.
While some work is a commentary on the experience of memory, social
relationships, sexuality and fantasy, other work focuses on the nature of the
deity, culture and mythology.
Experimenting with the application of paint, ink, charcoal, crayons, poster
markers, fabric, antique papers, fiberglass, acrylic , oil and collage, Faun engages
in a visceral and tactile relationship by using medium to communicate her deepest
feelings. One could say Faun speaks through her work by auto-biographically sharing her “story”. Faun's goal is that through sharing, her audience will recognize the common thread that unites us all.
