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.

 

She is translating her dramatic wave paintings into the flowing movement of water in her 2D wall sculptures. 
Connecting opposite ends of the physical spectrum - liquids to solids - placing thousands of hand-cut glass shards in rhythmical repetitions to create the optical illusion of movement.

Movement from stone... Water from stone.

      

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.

THE ART OF MOVEMENT


Collioure - beautiful by day, wonderful by night

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.

André Derain, Henri Matisse, & Pablo Picasso all were inspired by Collioure's royal castle, medieval streets, converted lighthouse & its typical Mediterranean bay.

Inspirational Miro

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.

Palafrugell, Catalonia -  Contemporary Sculpture Museum

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.

Andy's Birthday - Beach AcroYoga... Painting?

My dear friend Andy Purcell had a big birthday milestone... so we all went to the beach for some AcroYoga. 

The talented Mark Bond (0432 612 246) photographed it all and I'm thinking of distilling the essence into a painting - Watch this space.
