Fay Colmar, artist
The basic elements of Fay’s visual language are torn edges of paper, sprayed acrylic and color. These elements are organized by scale, frontality, and finally a compositional axis that can be horizontal, vertical, or diagonal.
The intent is to produce images through process and materials: The connection between real matter and abstract thought, legendary to fact; the changeless mask of nature and the illusion of growth; the transformation of the physical to the spiritual.
The images allude to nature: Clouds, mist, rippling water, the ravage of fire, the bleak california horizon. Paradoxically they range from romantic to tragic; dark to light; fragile to disintegrated; the images spill across the page. Beginning here, they end somewhere else. To see a part, one can perceive the whole.
