Joey Fauerso

Much of Joey Fauerso’s work depicts the human body as an intersection between nature and culture. Playing on the longstanding equation of nature with sexuality, recent paintings and animations depict sites of ecstasy and eroticism where body and landscape merge into a single entity. In a recent series of watercolors on paper, anthropomorphized landscapes depict intimate acts of dominance and submission, dissolving the boundaries between "inside" and "outside”.  In the ‘Wide Open Wide’ series the western night sky is framed by an open mouth, collapsing the boundaries between body and environment. 

Fauerso’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. She is currently an Assistant Professor at Texas State University, and lives in San Antonio with her husband Riley Robinson and their two sons.
