Bits and pieces of nature collected on walks as well as everyday objects characterize the subtle surrealism of Jeff Faust’s art. Faust studied the art and lives of the masters. From years of study, experimentation, and self discovery, Faust’s solo journey as an artist is reflected in the simplicity and balance of his unique style.
When viewing a Faust image, the initial feeling is often serenity and security. Or it might be pleasure from viewing the delicate beauty of the objects and skill of the painter. The painful, yet beautiful fragility of life is the thread running through Faust paintings. He masterfully portrays objects commonly seen along the coastline where he lives. The viewers’ rational eye sees a beautiful image—while the intuitive eye sees more.
“Most of us proceed through daily life feeling a sort of comfort and security-and we’re only one short step from something drastically different. Day to day existence is held in an intricate and delicate balance.”
