Biography

Bio. Faun Manne Studio Artist Fashion is the pulse of the world. There is nothing that escapes it's broad range, nowhere to hide from fashions dictate. As a former Fashion Designer I feel that fashion informs my art. Because of my in depth knowledge of the female figure, my work over the last several years has focused on exploring figurative narrative while utilizing mixed media in order to create texture in painting and drawing. Color and form translate content, which is largely referenced by the fashion world. Through the use of fabric, acrylic paint, ink, charcoal, antique newspapers and magazines, fiberglass, crayons, poster markers, found objects and trims and collage, I engage in a visceral and tactile relationship with my work. While some work is a commentary on the experience of memory, social relationships, sexuality and fantasy, other work focuses on the nature of the deity, culture and mythology. I am interested in forming a bond between what is considered “art” and what is considered “fashion”. I strive to blur the lines between the two worlds. In this way I hope to pose the question:”Is it fashion or is it art?”. Or is my work possibly a reflection of the two worlds colliding? I work in collage utilizing antique newspapers, magazines and maps as my source of inspiration. I also incorporate text into my collage work, using the spoken word to illuminate the painted form and to pose questions for my audience. Some of my work uses fabric in a process I developed called “fabric manipulation. In this technique I allow the fabric to drape over the form, bringing to life the actual shape and form of the body beneath. One could say I speak through my work by auto-biographically sharing my “story”. My goal is that through sharing, my audience will recognize the common thread that unites us all. .
