Photo collages by Faune Yerby!
Brooklyn-based artist, Faune Yerby, creates wonderful collages with images from New York.
Each piece speaks of Beauty, Nature and Science. The smallest things in Nature are given the same weight as those normally regarded as the most important. The work has all to do with the connections and coexistence of different places .
The work is designed to be read at different distances, as the meaning follows on different levels. From a distance, they may appear to be stain glass windows. Washes of color and geometric forms. Mosaics.
The grid suspends dichotomies in tension. A sequential story all-at-once.
As one approaches, a different work appears. Images set like jewels. Stories reveal themselves from the interplay between images, meeting for the first time. The vertical and horizontal strips of images live like little films or plays.
Using nineteenth-century photography techniques, and modern chemicals, I try to evoke the beauty of nature and a bygone time. All photographs are original prints, which have been toned and hand colored.
Prices range from $38.00 - $200.00

- Four New York City designers of fashion and jewelry joined forces to open TRUNK in Oct 2009, an exciting fusion boutique and exhibit space in DUMBO, Brooklyn’s trendy fashion enclave. The collections at TRUNK feature unique women’s wear, jewelry, accessories, art and furniture, all locally designed and manufactured. The store itself provides a backdrop for the products, making a bold statement that “style can be created and found locally.” Through their partnership at TRUNK, independent designers Aimee Grubel, Ilse Eriksson, Natasha Samoylenko and Radka Osickova bridge many aesthetics and backgrounds, from Europe and rural America to New York City. TRUNK provides an exciting platform for their varied creations, as well as for the work of invited designers and exhibitors.
