Image of artwork titled "The Sitting Room" by Joey Fauerso

Joey Fauerso, The Sitting Room, 2022
Acrylic on unstretched canvas
62 × 89 inches

Past bodies of work have been solely black and white. Here, the use of raw canvas as a substrate brings a visual warmth while harkening to an earlier era. Men lounge together in a dance studio; laze near a pond surrounded by logs, rocks and foliage; and enact mysterious rituals of physical strength. The epic painting Exit Plan unfurls across the wall like a scroll. In it women cinematically march and crawl across the picture plane, making their escape from the fixed confines of still lives and landscapes, a motif that Fauerso likens to “women escaping the patriarchy.”
