On Thursday June 18th Guy Hepner and The TAX Collection are pleased to release a new series with Fabio La Fauci featuring ten unique portraits and are exclusive to the gallery. The artworks will be available directly on the Guy Hepner Online Shop on Thursday from 2pm EST.
“Fabio’s acrylic paste has been rounded perfectly into the shape of a face—so while it is irregular and disarming, each portrait remains rigorous in its composition and form, creating an intriguing tension between organic figurative shapes and abstract geometry, and between reality and perplexity.”
Italian born, Berlin-based artist Fabio La Fauci‘s most recent work focuses on portraits, where each face has been masked by a thick, sculpted layer of ceramic and acrylic modelling paste. The series follows Fabio’s taste for surrealism and abstraction, ambiguity and transformation, and the passage from one form to another form. These works hint at our own disconnectedness in a world saturated with images; our curiosity and need for recognition veiled in an additional level of complexity and frightening disorientation.
