Press Release: Sweatin’ to tha Oldies by Fanee

Sweatin’ to tha Oldies

New Works by Fanee

Opening December 12th, 2009 7-11pm


Gallery Three is proud to present Sweatin’ to tha Oldies by Fanee. This collection of new works uses sexual imagery to represent romantic, but still naughty mentalities of a somewhat juvenile teen. Please join us at Gallery Three for the opening reception of Sweatin’ to tha Oldies on December 12th, 2009 from 7-11pm.

Fanee’s subject matter deals with the many fundamentals of naive love, dating and “sweatin” over various infatuations. This exhibit boldly showcases Fanee’s provocative vision of female sexuality in society.  She uses inner conflicts to explore the fine line between passion and delirium. Her characters take on different personas of clown-faced women, tattooed up, dressed in costume, and jeweled to the max. Shadowed by twisted song lyrics and provocative poses, her characters entrance the viewer by revealing their vulnerability.

This collection incorporates mixed media works creating a hybrid of drawing and painting on magazine paper. The premise of each piece begins with an image ripped from a kinky porn magazine. Fanee outlines her subjects with pen and pencil, adding and subtracting from the original image. She uses white oil-based markers and colored paint to add contrast and subtle pigments to the page.

A native of the Midwest, Fanee moved to New York City to begin her art education at Parsons The New School for Design. From there, she returned to her Midwest roots and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). After a six-year tenure in Chicago, she relocated to San Francisco to further her passion and her artistic career.

Sweatin’ to tha Oldies will be Fanee’s second solo exhibit at Gallery Three. Her new works are provocative, arousing and guaranteed entertainment. Please join us for the opening reception of Sweatin’ to tha Oldies by Fanee at Gallery Three on December 12th 2009, from 7-11pm. This exhibition runs through January 2nd 2010, and is open to the public.
