Jesse Faber was born in Amsterdam, Holland in 1973. He attended the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague where he received his BFA cum laude in 1999. In his work Faber combines iconic dutch masters from the golden 17th century with modern materials such as cardboard boxes and sandpaper. The materials are recycled and placed in a new context. The paint is applied in transparent layers and the imprints of the surface such as bar codes, labels and texts as ‘Fragile’ are still visible. Thus the old and the new are merged into single timeless artworks. A potent reminder, courtesy of Faber: what is old is new, what is new is soon historic.
The paintings of Jesse Faber have been shown in exhibitions in New York, Basel, Amsterdam, Paris, Miami and London.
