With this latest work, Faber continues to toe this line between figurative and abstract art, though it's one that's increasingly getting blurred. There's more guesswork involved and not knowing. That can be challenging, but Faber leaves just enough clues to keep you in the game.
There was a decision early on (prior to the start of these paintings) to merge representation with abstraction.
"This work to me is about discovery," says Austin painter Jonathan Faber, whose series of drawings and paintings on view at David Shelton Gallery began "with this idea of developing a visual language around the act of recalling experiences or memories."
"...the exhibition demonstrates an interesting combination of mediums, and an educated exploration of abstract art."
