Extraordinary pieces with ordiary objects.

Another ordinary office/ art class objects turned into a piece of art. Either with crayon or paper Faur ‘s sensitivity to colour and object is the root of this success.

“In my work, I try to mimic these elegant structures of nature by developing systems of my own with which to express my thoughts and ideas, so that the medium and the message appear as one.
I think of it like a game, with a set of axioms that are established at the outset through the limitations of the material or forms from which the work is constructed, which then dictates what can and cannot be "said" within the boundaries of the chosen medium. This material limitation can also be a strength, as there is the potential to contain thoughts and ideas in unique ways, so that the "medium" can become the "message." This intertwining of form and function can be seen most directly in my most recent work, which is comprised of
crayons and shredded paper.”- Christian Faur
