Working in oil paintings that mostly feature female subjects, Korin Faught’s delicate, feminine, highly narrative works are both interesting, subtle, and in many ways nostalgic. Her figures come across as extremely natural, no doubt a product of her process of arranging photo shoots with friends who frequently pose as subjects for Faught’s paintings. She is also adept at portraying herself in paintings, often times including not one image, but multiple images of the same subject within one painting either by way of water reflections, mirror images, or a series of emotions. Faught’s work is haunting and emotionally inspiring. Her technique of capturing subtle emotional changes within subjects, as well as her technique of capturing light and shadow, is captivating. Her interest in exploring various decades through fashion and style lends a sense of timelessness to her paintings and subjects.
Korin Faught was born in 1981 and received her BFA from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Her work has been exhibited in group and solo shows throughout the United States, including shows in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Seattle.
