Aquatic Art & Bodies in Motion

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.


Movement with Drama


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.
