Video One Painting
7 – 22 August 2015
Opening Friday 7 August 6.00 – 8.00pm
Suzy Faiz’ work addresses the materials, conventions, styles and histories of painting. It attempts to extend the traditions that it emerges from. She creates paintings as they allow for the continuation of notions of freedom; something that is significant in both art and life.
Suzy Faiz’ work deals with recent contemporary attitudes towards abstraction and can be seen to be working within and against this framework by experimenting with different techniques and solutions within the practice of painting.
Suzy Faiz was born in Gosford, and now lives Sydney. Exhibitions include SOOP, Alpha Gallery, Sydney (2015); Rundgang, Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Vienna (2015); TELEVISION (presented by Matthys Gerber), Sarah Cottier Gallery, Sydney (2014); The Mind Body Problem, Gallery 2010, Sydney (2014).
