Through her paintings of breaking waves - & her fast-action sketches bodies in motion - Sian Faber paints Movement with Drama.
Her Wave/Surfer Paintings are inspired from her 15 years living at Bondi & her love of ocean swimming.
Her Ink Sketches are inspired by her anatomical knowledge of the moving body, her thrice-weekly yoga & ocean swimming sessions, and her love of dance.
A Pilates Teacher & Remedial Masseur of 20 years experience, Sian has massaged thousands of normal bodies as well as rockstars & supermodels - including Will-I-Am, Miranda Kerr and Kristy Hinze.
Her love of dance sees her supporting the Sydney Dance Company & she's been inspired by her friendships with the Artistic Director Rafael Bonachela & prima ballerina Darcey Bussell.
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.
