Joey Fauerso’s print for Serie XVIII depicts a man being erased or subsumed by two fields of color. The image places the figure between the manifest and the “unmanifest.” Fauerso was influenced by Francisco Goya’s The Dog painting (from the Black Period), William Blake, and Hindu imagery during the design and production of this serigraph.
Fauerso earned her B.F.A. with Honors and High Distinction from the University of Iowa at Iowa City in 1998 and her M.A. and M.F.A. at the University of Wisconsin at Madison in 2000 and 2001 respectively. She is currently a professor at Texas State University where she teaches drawing. She has participated in many group and solo exhibitions and lectures around the country. She currently lives in San Antonio, Texas.
“I think artists should strive to push and transcend boundaries and cultural assumptions. Art provides a way for us to see our world – the banal, the political, historical, and natural – in new terms.”
