Poppy Faun
One Life, 1974 - Surrealist Original Mix Media Collage

2021

$3,895.35

About

"Christy is in fact a reflection of everyone" explains college artist Poppy Faun. "A name, but we all have names and are all connected. We all have one life to live (in this life anyway). We are all taught to dream of a big house, a car, a job in the city and buying nice things. In this artwork ‘Christy’ has had a realisation that there's a world to see and with her suitcase ready to travel, she leaves all the materialist things behind." This original mix media collage is themed in 1974, and all images used are from that year. Framed in black with anti-reflective glass Poppy Faun is a collage artist and graphic designer from her home town of Brighton. She uses unique 1960's and 1970's images, spending her days searching through flea markets collecting idiosyncratic magazines and postcards then transfigures them into aesthetic perfection. Much of her work seems to harbour a message of escapism. Her cutouts bare an image floating through the cosmos, make something quite classic feel futuristic and otherworldly. Acknowledging these decades as a revolution for fashion and rock and roll, Poppy pines for the past.
