> DESCRIPTION


Kim Foster Gallery is pleased to present The Land Surveyors, Christian Faur’s first solo show in New York City. Using an intricate digital mapping technique, Faur deconstructs imagery down to pixels. This information is used to hand-cast crayons into precise tones and colors. Eventually, thousands of crayons are reassembled into wooden frames to produce an art form that balances the qualities of photography, painting and sculpture. From a distance, the pieces look like highly pixelated images. It is only when the viewer gets closer that they realize that the pixels are crayon tips.
