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’s works often aim to reframe structural forms such as a barriers, dividers or architectural devices. This cultural referencing coincides with physical acts of assembling, repurposing and combining various materials in his studio.
Faint is the recipient of the Gosford Art Prize 2023, and is a finalist in the 2024 NSW Visual Arts Fellowship (Emerging), developed and curated by Artspace, Sydney.
