Blending painting and drawing, Julia Faber pits nature against the real-life robots that emulate its creatures. The Vienna-based artist contrasts realistic, painted backdrops or animals with stunning linework. In the past, Faber’s work traversed humanity’s own periled social structures and history. This new body of work appears to explore our effect on the world outside of our physical bodies.
“Julia Faber’s hyperrealistic painting is concerned with themes of the formation and disciplining of bodies, through citations of classical mythological motifs and illustrations of forced pedagogical regulations of the body from textbooks and newspaper advertisements from the 19th century,” says the publisher Schlebrügge.Editor.
