Collaboration with a Bird by Theresa Faris.

Faris is drawn to “the simplest techniques of sawing/piercing and fabrication as I find that I am able to forget about the process.” Her work, she says, “explores the notion of advantage and disadvantage that, adjacently, resides within all beings.”

“Teresa’s work shows a nice range of artistic skills,” says Treva Reimer, professor of art.

Faris is associate professor and area head of the metals program at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater where she received the Women in Leadership Award. She co-authored the Women of Metal Exhibition and Oral History Project, has received many grants and awards and exhibits extensively in Europe and the United States.
