Freedom, power, and “the unconscious line” are central to Faber Savage's mark making and visual story telling. Working with crayons, paint, mixed materials and printmaking, she layers and exposes; revealing, combining and pushing materials on multiple surfaces through an etching press. She continually pushes and expands the boundaries of traditional printmaking. Faber Savage uses specific imagery to tell her visual stories: birds, wires, cages, moons, houses, boxes, and swimmers. These graphic symbols act as a bridge for her to explore personal emotions, spiritual thoughts, fears, memories, daily and fantasy life.
