Texas Hill Country based artist Fallon Bartos creates assemblages, organizing an array of objects into suggestive forms and abstract transfigurations. Born in Okinawa, Fallon’s greatest artistic influence and explanation of her work come from the Japanese aesthetics practiced during her youth. Her work embraces simplicity; it is balanced, rhythmic, and precious. Inspiration comes by way of both the artist’s materials and process. Sourcing various organic objects, forms of metal, minerals, and crystals, Fallon thoughtfully arranges and rearranges these until an elemental combination reveals itself.
This intuitive method is as meditative as it is productive. Fallon’s art creates unity and connection, not in similarities, but in the materials’ relationships to their whole and those effects on the viewer. It is her intention that viewers engage and discuss their thoughts and interpretations. Her artwork not only entertains the eye, it moves the heart and inspires the soul.
