Faith Burch Bio

LAND, SEA & SKY

A homage to my love of swimming in the river and the sea, and of walking through the South Devon landscape. Gestural and instinctive mark making reflecting the spirit of place.

TOTEM (images of Self)

Human, animal and totemic forms in elemental and primal colours, on visceral and gritty surfaces referencing body and earth. Echoes of dream images and archetypes from the unconscious.

PORTRAITS / LIFE DRAWINGS

Spellbound by the depth and story held in the human body, I love the challenge and excitement of taking a shot at capturing something of that person’s essence in mixed media drawing and painting. I also paint Beings that appear in my dreams and imagination, and enjoy combining the real with the imaginal.
