A Conversation with the artist Annita Faitaki, March 17, 2016

March 17, 2016

Sculptor Annita Faitaki “gives form to the energy” of the earth. Faitaki’s organic abstract sculptures are spheres, bodies, and discs that contain faces or face-like amorphisms. They are universally recognizable, but not standard. Faitaki pushes existing forms to surreal limits to explore the dualism of one’s psyche: the good and the evil in each person. Her work deals with our need to live our lives finding harmony within this duality. As people forge their own paths, they seek completion and plentitude, and Faitaki’s sculptures explore these elements in powerful, passionate, and symbolic archetypal forms.

img04Faitaki was born on the island of Crete, Greece and has since lived and worked in both Athens and New York City. Her background gives her the perfect perspective to explore not only the duality of the psyche, but of past and present, memory and modernity. Her works are created from passions of the past, attitudes of the present, and the fears and hopes for the future. They are universal in this, and timeless.
