Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

If her paintings on canvas tell a story, then Faux’s cut-out pieces could be considered verses and phrases extracted from it. Forming constellations on the wall, these collages both visualize and stimulate a non- linear progression of thoughts as one peruses through them.

Artist Profile

Born: 1986

Hometown: New York

Based in: New York

In her paintings, Sarah Faux merges the seemingly disparate strands of figurative representation and gestural abstraction to construct sensual situations where raw female bodies drift in a state of liminality. Faux crops her subjects to focus on specific body parts, a compositional strategy that pulls the audience into an intimate, first-person perspective. Unable to identify a pronounced figure, we find ourselves gazing into flattened fields of color, parsing the faintly discernible scenes with a curious grin.

Sarah Faux (b. 1986, Boston) lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Faux received her MFA in Painting from the Yale School of Art in 2015. She received a joint BA/BFA from Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design in 2009. Faux has had solo exhibitions at Capsule Shanghai (Shanghai, China), Cuevas Tilleard (New York, USA), Thierry Goldberg Gallery (New York, USA) and at Stems Gallery (Brussels, Belgium). Faux's work has been exhibited in group shows nationally and internationally, including at Fredericks & Freiser (New York, USA), ltd los angeles (Los Angeles, USA), and Shoot the Lobster (New York, USA). Faux has participated in several residencies including Yaddo (New York, USA), Cuevas Tilleard Projects (Lamu, Kenya) and a fellowship at the Ox-bow School of Art (USA). In 2020 she was artist in residence at the Swatch Art Peace Hotel (Shanghai, China).

Her paintings have been written about in Cultured Magazine, artcritical, Surface Magazine, Modern Painters, The Wall Street Journal, Interview Magazine, Hyperallergic, Artsy and Artsy Asia, among others. Her solo project was presented at Frieze New York 2019 in Frame section by Capsule Shanghai.
