Rod Faulds: Recent Photo-Based Works
June 7 – August 17, 2014
Rod Faulds employs digital photography to create semi-abstract works that occupies a space between photography and painting. His work presents and blends photographic images into repeated patterns of light and color. Geometric, near-minimal abstraction matters more to Faulds than photography as a means of depiction or deception. Exploiting the camera’s ability to record images repeatedly, Faulds captures numerous images without composing. He later selects and edits, adhering to self-imposed structures to retain random qualities.
Faulds is a museum professional and educator. As an undergraduate, he studied photography and printmaking. He holds an MA in Exhibition Design and a Certificate in Museum Studies from California State University, Fullerton, and is the Director of the University Galleries at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton.
