Biography

Faune Yerby- Mixed Media- Photography- Fiber

San Francisco Art Institute - BFA

Rutgers University - Mason Gross School of Art- MFA

All my work is informed by my surroundings. Each piece speaking of Beauty, Nature,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 and things in nature.

The work is designed to be read at different distances, as the meaning follows on different levels. 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.

All photographs are original.

Fiber- Faune Yerby (YetiYarnsandDryGoods.etsy.com) makes super handspun bulky art yarns using all different types of mostly hand dyed wool. To make each skein unique I add silk, feathers,recycled fabrics and beads. Also I started making nuno felted pieces using merino wool. Each piece is hand dyed and painted so I try to create one-of kind organic looking pieces.
