Hillary Waters Fayle - the concept of art as impermanent

Hillary Fayle uses botanical materials and combines them with the rich traditions of needlecraft. “What I do is about elevating details. It is about noticing cycles and connections. It is about regarding a familiar object in a new way.“ Faye’s pieces are much more than exquisite needlework done on botanical specimens. They deal with the concept of art as impermanent. Unlike the paintings of the renaissance masters which were created with a strong sense of perpetuity, these works are created for temporary appreciation. They are almost Buddhist in their approach, much like the Tibetan mandalas of sand which symbolize the transitory nature of material life.

Once they have disintegrated only the digital images of these works of art will remain as documentation and proof of their existence. Here’s a thought for your Monday. Will the images of the perished physical works now become the art?
