Ernestine Faux’s works can be found in highly recognized collections in Europe, Australia, Asia and the United States. Her artwork has created a presence in numerous international businesses: hotel chains, restaurants and large corporations have entrusted her with the task of creatively styling their business spaces in recent years. Recently Ernestine Faux has produced large-format outdoor installations that allow the viewer to intimately participate in the colours. These sculptural discs, embedded in natural outdoor and urban settings, can be approached from all sides, inviting the viewer to absorb the magnetizing colour they radiate and sense as it were its physical energy. Born in Graz, AT, the freelance artist sought already in her early years to balance her interests between fashion design and the visual arts, so that her subsequent international career in the fashion industry shaped in part her work as an artist. Ernestine Faux spent more than 20 years in the Middle East and Asia before finally dedicating herself full-time in 1994 to her calling as an artist. Spending decades on various continents interacting with a variety of cultures, she has developed her own unique yet universal colour language. In 1996 she returned to Austria and committed herself to the study of colour, light and sound. The artist consciously perceives colour as a language of the emotions, not only perceived through the eyes but also penetrating body and spirit. On the threshold of her image space, the viewer is greeted with simple geometric forms, either painted with great precision or in some cases painted softly with colours diffusing across the surface. This is in effect what makes Ernestine Faux’s work so unique: while experimenting with the contemplative power of colour, she engages with the vibrations emanating from it.
