Artist Statement / For CV scroll down


Ami Faytchevitz is represented here mainly by watercolors, a medium which is not very prevalent on the contemporary art scene, yet one which projects intimacy, privacy and reduction. The works themselves are also an engagement in dreamy contemplation of Nature and the individual identification of birds.
This is a sensitive series for connoisseurs, a series conveying comfort in escapism from the race for a “significant statement,” It is precisely because of this that the paintings win us over with their airiness, color, lightweight sensation and freedom.
Faytechevitz’s works have something in common with Persian miniatures’ depictions of the luxurious pleasure gardens and the painstaking care with details, but although they share the attention to detail, Faytechevitz’s paintings exhibit high awareness, conciseness and reduction. He has no need for background or other distractions; his entire attention is focused on the birds, their identity, character and the interaction among them.
