Vincent Faust
Excision

2013

$2,800

About

Unique powder coated steel sculpture. As its name suggests, "Excision" reveals its details by a cutting away or removal of certain parts of the form. The original components are 6” square steel tubing. When segments are removed and parts combined at tactical angles, the resulting form is skeletal in nature with complex intersections of negative space. "Dynamic" and "colorful" are among the attributes that best describe Vincent Faust’s work. He creates welded steel sculptures that range from soaring organic shapes to assemblages one might consider geometric puzzles. The dynamism is a result of his fanciful abstract open forms that inspire the viewer to contemplate nature and technology alike, sometimes simultaneously. "My work is typically not figurative," Faust says, "but rather examines the abstract relationship between positive and negative space, and highlights the interplay of balance, tension and movement." Faust is a professional stage designer, painter and multidisciplinary artist. He holds a BFA in Scenery Design from the Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA in Design for Theatre from Penn State University. Over a 35-year career, Faust designed stage sets for well over 150 theatre and dance productions for various venues, including several national touring musicals. During this time he was also an Adjunct Professor, teaching university classes in stage design. He is an accomplished scenery and backdrop painter, proficient craftsman, and owned a scenery and display production company for many years. In tandem with a move to Santa Fe, New Mexico, Faust transitioned his creative energies to welded and assembled steel sculpture. He is inspired by the New Mexico landscape, as are so many artists, and finds his aesthetic influence in abstract interpretations that may either blend or contrast with the natural environment.
