About the artist:
Remy Faint is an emerging artist based on Gadigal land, Sydney. His practice is motivated by the desire to expand languages of painterly abstraction by examining its global histories. While often referencing collection-based objects and materials specific to his Chinese heritage — his works mediate cross-cultural and material frameworks to explore themes surrounding exchange, visibility and hybridised artistic production.
Remy has exhibited nationally including at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts [PICA], Cement Fondu, UNSW Galleries, Gosford Regional Gallery, Sichuan Fine Arts Institute (Chongqing), ADSpace, Mothership Studios, Sheffer Gallery, Comber Street Studios and Kudos Gallery. Remy was curated into the national graduate exhibition Hatched, at PICA in 2022 where he received the inaugural Schenberg Art High Commendation Award. He was also selected to undertake a one-month residency at PICA in May, 2022. Remy was the winner of the 2023 Gosford Art Prize and has been a finalist in the Mosman Art Prize, the Jenny Birt Painting Prize, Kudos Emerging Artist Award and was a studio resident at the City of Sydney Creative Studios, Bathurst Street. He recently presented his first solo exhibition at Cement Fondu in the Project Space with his exhibition The Library and the Cave, in June 2023.
