Printmaking, sculpture and drawing

My artwork has for two decades been concerned with surface, structure and volume. Recent work is fascinated with a granular, axiomatic form and content. Drawings exhibit extremely detailed mark making, prints exhibit a modular construction, and sculptures are assembled from large quantities of small, similarly sized pieces of material attached to, or enveloping, other three dimensional objects. The scale of the sculpture, the materials used, and their ‘pixelated’ appearance, endow my three dimensional work with a narrative which is only revealed as they are assembled.

In the past three years I have returned to working with stone and figurative imagery. Perhaps this will lead to a synthesis of sorts, that is, artwork where the two sculptural directions I am working in come together in a compatible whole.

Overall, since moving to Australia in 1998, the primary source for my investigation has been the arid regions North Western Victoria and South Western NSW. Amidst that landscape, I find myself considering not only the delicate surface of the earth but also the similarly delicate surface of the human condition. I then bring these ideas back to Melbourne and a city environment where they evolve into the work that I currently produce.

Faye De Pasquale exhibiting artist – 33 Fitzroy Street

Faye has been exhibiting her work most years since the 1970’s.

She has spent many years teaching art in secondary colleges to all levels particularly working as a specialist art teacher with year 12 students at painting and art history.

On a personal note I was privileged to have Faye as my year 10 art teacher and I am thrilled  to be able to see her paintings in this extra ordinary pop up gallery at 33 Fitzroy Street, Window Art Walk as part of the St Kilda Art Crawl.

This ancient land touched me very deeply. I was profoundly moved by this visit; an experience which pervaded my very being.  I was silenced by it’s beauty and timeless quality,  with it’s rivers and gorges, rock formations and land structures. The heightened colour, vast expanses and patterned forms, seen here, presented me with a sense of freedom not found elsewhere.

I believed I could interpret this beauty in my own  personal manner and that in doing so, I would have subject matter for a life time.

I am pleased to say that my paintings  have been well received and given much pleasure to many people. They have been the vehicle which has given an opportunity  to share my experiences, and instil a desire in others to have a further personal encounter with his wonderful land.  by Faye de Pasqualie
