About the Work

Brad Faine is an internationally recognized artist and printmaker who was, for 40 years the managing director of Coriander Studio, one of Europe's foremost printers and publishers of fine art limited editions, specializing in serigraphic and digital prints. In 2010 he resigned his directorship of Coriander to concentrate on making his own prints and paintings. Since 2005 his limited editions have been generated exclusively on computers and exist only in digital form. All of his prints are first generation images and are not reproductions of pre-existing drawings or paintings.

“Through a Glass Dark” 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 7” 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 7” is a 50 x 42 – inch digital pigment print with diamond dust on canvas.

About the Artist

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.
