“Through a Glass Darkly” is perhaps a reference to the act of divination as one of attempting to peer behind the veil, reveal what is hidden. Faine has partitioned the canvas into 42 images, giving us the 22 trumps, all of the face cards (16) and 4 numbers in the corners. Faine’s image choices are sometimes thoughtful, sometimes witty and pay homage to some of the great works of art, from the 15th century to the present.
“Through a Glass – Darkly 10” is part of a 12-print suite which includes “Through a Glass – Darkly numbered 1 through 12 and it comes in different color patterns. Brad Faine created the “Through a Glass – Darkly” suite in 2018. “Through a Glass – Darkly 10” is a 50 x 42 – inch digital pigment print with diamond dust on canvas.
Brad Faine was born and raised in Brighton, England. He is the son of a Royal Australian Air Force bomber pilot and a British cabaret singer and was born in 1945. He studied Fine Arts (Painting) at Leicester College of Art, where he achieved a Dip Ad (Hons) under the tutelage of Harry Thubron, an early proponent of conceptual art. Subsequently, he completed a Post Graduate ATC course at Goldsmiths in London. During his time at Leicester, Faine developed the first truly playable three-dimensional Chess set, which was exhibited at the 'Invention of Problems' Exhibition at the ICA. He was also responsible for the concept for ‘Inter-play,’ one of the two British entries for the 1968 Paris Biennale.
