About the Work

Sarah Faux is known for her expressive canvases that address the abstract nature of sensory experience, specifically in intimate and sexual moments. Faux's recent works revolve around creating two paintings of one scene to underscore the dimensional nuance of a singular bodily experience. Her exploration of multifaceted experience expands from the analogous relationship between the texture of the body and the materiality of paint to the externally policed views of female sexuality versus women’s empirical experience. In Melatonin Dream, Faux further embraced the connection of surface to content by collaging pieces cut from original drawings atop an archival pigment print created from one of her paintings. Each piece is hand-touched with unique variants.
