Sarah Faux (b. 1986, Boston, MA, lives and works in Brooklyn, NY) makes paintings that embrace unabashed sensuality, autonomy and pleasure. Faux’s fluid compositions teeter on the edge of reality, revealing how much of our emotional and sensory lives take place beneath the surface. Faux’s solo exhibitions include Sweetbitter, Hales New York, NY USA (2023); Whatever I see I swallow at M+B, Los Angeles, CA, USA (2021); Perfect for Her at Capsule Shanghai, China (2020) and Gemini, Stems Gallery, Brussels, Belgium (2016), among others. She has been exhibited in many group shows, including Sim Smith, London, England (2023), Lyles & King, New York, NY, USA (2022); Loyal Gallery, Stockholm, Sweden (2020) and Thomas Erben Gallery, New York, NY, USA (2019). Faux has been the recipient of many residencies and grants, including a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant (2023), a Keyholder Fellowship at the Lower East Side Printshop, New York, NY, USA (2018-19), artist residencies at Yaddo, Saratoga Springs, NY, USA (2017, 2012) and the Yale School of Art’s Gloucester Painting Prize, Gloucester, MA, USA (2014). Faux’s paintings have been written about in Cultured Magazine, Surface Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Modern Painters, Hyperallergic, i-D Vice and Artsy, among others.
