ANNITA FAITAKI

My name is Annita Faitaki. I am a sculptor and painter. I was born on the island of Crete and grew up among a family of goldsmiths. It is easy to see the influence of ancient art in my work; I bring the classical world into the modern era, giving my pieces a sense of timelessness while confronting modern issues. Much of my work addresses social concerns such as the place of women in society, communication between people and groups, the importance of respecting human rights, and the necessary freedom of people to express themselves. I see sculpture as a reflection of the energy of the earth and therefore a powerful means of expression, building community and connecting the heart with the mind. The process by which i create my sculptures is highly technical, time consuming, and expensive. I first create each piece in clay or wax, then have them cast in bronze at a foundry. Later, i may add on a patina in order to create colour. I describe the process as one of manifestation: the search for an unknown world waiting to be discovered. My paintings, too, depict a sculptural quality in their texture, energy, and depth.
