Capsule Shanghai is pleased to welcome you to visit us at Frieze NY. We will present Sarah Faux with a solo booth at Frame Section, Booth F1.
In Sarah Faux's paintings, each canvas absorbs color like a porous skin, corporeal forms emerging slowly from pools of oil. These fragmented forms are activated by prolonged looking, as viewers project their own sense memory into the image before them. Like a Rorschach blot, how you see is as critical (and as sensual) as what you see.
For our booth Faux has created a site-specific group of cut-canvas collages. In this composition Faux explores a polymorphous moment of touch, as a twisting body gazes awkwardly back at her interloper. The collages will be displayed in conjunction with a larger painting in oil.
This entire group of work is a natural extension of recent developments in Faux's practice, expanding her cut-out body-parts into an ambitious spatial construction where, as in color field painting, the viewer is thrust directly into the action, their own body responding to the large scale of these dye and distressed skins hung loosely from grommets.
