"Curiosity and Flux" by Shawn Faust at the Mezzanine Gallery


Dec 6, 2019 to Jan 10, 2020
08:00 AM until 04:30 PM

This event occurs daily, every weekday.


Curiosity and Flux, an exhibition of abstract paintings by Shawn Faust, will be on view in the Mezzanine Gallery from December 6, 2019 – January 10, 2020. The artist will host a free opening reception on Friday, December 6 from 5-7 p.m. Faust, a resident of Bear, received a 2019 Established Fellowship in Painting from the Delaware Division of the Arts.

The work in this exhibition represents a shift for Faust, who is best known for his award-winning representational equestrian paintings. For his new abstract works, he merges pictorial elements of representation with non-objective forms as a response to memories and the ephemeral qualities of life. Faust compares himself to a chef who is changing the menu by using the same ingredients, tools, and techniques but with differing results. 

He explains, “I grant myself permission to diverge and pivot from one medium to another, experimenting with process and mark-making in search of my unknown. As a result, I am in a constant state of flux and possibility.”

The Mezzanine Gallery, open weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is located on the second floor of the Carvel State Office Building, 820 N. French Street, Wilmington. The Gallery will be closed on December 25, 2019 and January 1, 2020.
