Sian Faber is an Artist in Transition… from painting to sculpture…. from watercolours to glass & marble... from the beaches
of New Zealand & Australia to the mountains of Southern Spain.
From her foundation years as a New Zealand and Australian artist, Sian is enjoying expanding her horizons learning traditional and time honoured techniques in new media so she
can deliver her story with a contemporary voice. Her sculpture projects in Spain have already taken her to Italy, Morrocco & India in search of source materials.
Sian Faber graduated from Elam Fine Art School, Auckland University, New Zealand, before traveling to Sydney, Australia where she lived and worked for 30 years,
before moving to Andalucia, in Southern Spain.
Andalucia, Southern Spain
Collioure is at the very bottom left of southern France.
In the early 20th century, it became a center of artistic activity - particularly with Fauve artists.
Joan Miro has been - and still remains - an inspiration to me.
His work has been interpreted as Surrealism, a sandbox for the subconscious mind, a re-creation of the childlike, and a manifestation of Catalan pride.
These shots are from the Joan Miro' s museum (Fundació Joan Miro) established in his native city of Barcelona in 1975.
My type of bull-fighting.
One of many wonderful pieces not only at the museum, but throughout Parafrugell... on sidewalks & roundabouts, by pedestrian squares & cafes - everywhere.
They really appreciate art here.
