a lovelier thing i don’t believe i have ever seen, perhaps? these gorgeous paintings and jewelry from seattle artist (by way of north carolina) faryn davis for her fernworks are mind boggling. faryn incorporates wood, resin, paint and wax with assorted ephemera to create a truly unique collection of art objects and jewelry. she has a bfa from the university of north carolina, and considers herself to be a master collector of small things. some of her more recent pieces are slightly out of focus, an influence that comes from the foggy, mysterious essence and conditions of the pacific northwest.
i really hope you can see the laborious details in these pieces. when i spoke with faryn at the fair she mentioned that her work is difficult to photograph, which i found to be true. i can only describe with words the depth these pieces have, filled with bits of found objects and color, all with a consistently quiet, pensive theme or energy.
the soul they have goes without saying.
more appealing things on her website.
