Julia Faber at Gallery Lisabird Contemporary in Vienna, Austria

Julia Faber’s exhibition “Hier sitz ich, forme Menschen” at gallery Lisabird Contemporary in Vienna, Austria.

Julia Faber’s paintings convey a sense of the grotesque with a strong touch of surrealism. References from mythology or other historical hints are mixed with the present in order to create something timeless. Furthermore, Julia Faber’s work is often characterized by the combination of hyper realistic painting and ink drawings. The Austrian artist deals with different topics such as the human quest for perfection and discipline, and how we try to push the limits of norms and taboos. Julia Faber uses a range of historical references in her paintings and relates them to the topics of perfection and optimization.

In her current exhibition “Hier sitz ich, forme Menschen” (“here I sit, forming people”), Julia Faber faces all breaches of norms as well as the pursuit of the ultimate perfection up to the punishment. The exhibition was opened on December 11, 2015 and will run until January 30, 2016 at gallery Lisabird Contemporary in Vienna, Austria.
