The exhibition is entitled “Fire and Water”, and is made up of a total of 33 pieces of painting and sculpture, many of them framed, and can be visited until June 21, from Tuesday to Friday, from 09:00 to 8:00 p.m., and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., with free access.

Sian Faber . A Fine Art graduate from Auckland, New Zealand, Sian has lived and worked in Sydney, Australia for over 30 years, focusing on seascapes and fluid movement in her painting practice. In Andalusia, Ella Sian has found her European “voice”, incorporating the mountainous landscape into stone and glass wall sculptures.

From her studio in the Malaga town of Gaucín, “gazing down the old paths of bandits to the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and Morocco”, as the artist states, she has adapted Byzantine mosaic traditions, learned in Italy, to perfect her technique’ ShardCut’.

Sian turns hand-cut fragments of stained glass into colored cements to create textures of fluid motion, like blades of sea grass. The constant reflection of light on the glass creates a visual magic, undulating, as on the surface of water, revealing what the sun knows: that the diamonds are scattered in the flow.

The jewel-shaped fragments are surrounded by settings of natural stone, deliberately left raw to reveal their own stories of movement, through time. Designed as hanging wall sculptures, you can hang a piece of a mountain on your wall.

“The concepts of time and tide, ebb and flow, and the transitory fragility of life, are a constant theme as I strive to create something of lasting beauty. Although I know that nothing lasts forever, and even stone can be worn away by wind and water. Perhaps, then, it is the actual act of creating that becomes the thing, the evidence of which tells a story… I was here”, says Sian Faber.

Since its inception, he has shown his work individually, mainly, and collectively, on more than twenty occasions, between New Zealand and Sydney, and in Gaucín, on the last five occasions.

His work is part of private collections in America, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Italy, France and Spain.
