About

Dancing in the space between abstraction and figuration, Sarah Faux treats bodies as landscapes. For the April/May issue Cultured Commission, the painter created a series of four bodily topographies—each a monotype. "The bodies in my monotypes are seen from above, looking down from a first-person point of view. In this close proximity, your vision migrates and shifts focus, like a female orgasm waxing and waning at will. I called the series 'Feel Flows,' and I think of these prints as an open-ended braiding together of hands, boobs and hairy chests that resist and dissolve into each other. While each print is unique, it also leaves a ghost image on its Plexiglas plate, traces of its first run through the printing press. So I get to rework and reprint every body again, letting it hover gently over its own shadow." —Sarah Faux Each unique monotype is printed on Rives BFK paper, framed, signed and dated in the lower right margin.
