Sara Faccin

Empty circles full of light

Saturday January 31 2015
only between 4:30 and 6:30 PM

The canvas is a fine-weft unprimed cotton. The surfaces are almost never stretched on a stretcher while I work. I first choose the dimensions and prepare the tonalities of subtle, low-contrast colors, and white is never absent. Then I spread the fabric flat and start painting until I feel that I have filled the spaces that surround me. I let acrylic paint droplets fall, that get absorbed slowly, one per second, like breathing. They resemble needlework.
The movement is continuous and regular but the result is not. I don't start from any sketch but only follow the first ring I paint, expanding and taking territory. The resulting circles are the effect of my operating as if I were myself the at the time the center of my work. Every piece is unique even though produced with a process similar to the others. Sometimes tonalities change when paint is applied to the canvas, creating washes of two different colors. Here, I am exhibiting several paintings Salon style. They interact among themselves and offer the viewer alternative readings.
