FAUSTA FACCIPONTE!

Here is Fausta Facciponte’s Doll Series.  Coming face to face with these large portraits, one notices dust, dirt, and filaments of hair–remnants left by the author to convey the arduous process she went upon to rescue and salvage the old children’s toys.  Thrift stores, garage sales, and online auctions were just a few of the places Facciponte found these relics of children’s past, long forgotten by their owners.  Through examining these objects, asking what their story is, where they come from, who owned them and who confided in them, the work creates an empathy within the viewer, adding to the experience the sense that the viewer themselves is likened to a material object.
