Fritz Faiss: A Retrospective
September 18–November 28, 2009

Fritz Faiss (1905–1981), German artist, philosopher, author, and poet, was born one of fourteen children in Furtwangen, in the Black Forest of Germany on March 6, 1905. His mother gave him the gift of music and storytelling; his father, the gift of scientific and mechanical thinking. As a young boy he preferred to travel through Germany and Europe alone, on foot or on bicycle, with nothing but his sketchbook and passport. He made contact with leading artists of his time, including Adolf Hoelzel, and was not only a teacher, but a medical doctor as well. Faiss was accepted at the Bauhaus and studied under Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky.

By 1937, Faiss was named a “degenerate” artist by the Nazi regime as the rise of Hitlerism grew in force. Although he was forbidden to paint, exhibit, or send his work outside of Germany, he continued to paint secretively at great risk; he risked his life to save his work just as he risked his life to save the lives of many of his friends. Although the Nazis destroyed Faiss's studio twice, he saved some of his woodcuts from Gestapo searches by hiding them in woodpiles or disguising them by pasting paintings over them and hanging them in his studio. He was forced to give up his medical practice and was taken to a forced labor camp, where he suffered under medical experiments. Faiss was one of three who survived the camp and was released by American intervention.

He spent years recovering from the labor camp and his first exhibition after the war was fittingly sponsored by the American Military Government, in Pforzheim, in 1947. His work has been exhibited in most capitals in Europe as well as the east and west coasts of the United States.

In 1951, Faiss left behind a professorship at Frankfurt-am-Main and came to California. He accepted a position at the University of California at Los Angeles. He left after being criticized for encouraging individualism in the arts, and accepted a position at California State University, Northridge. He retired in 1973 as a professor Emeritus. Faiss suffered a stroke in 1976, which greatly influenced his later work. He took another challenge in stride as he used his left hand to paint.

Others call his work expressionist, but Fritz Faiss's work stands alone; he calls his work “Faissism.” He shifts easily from the naturalistic to the abstract. He was an artist during the years after the first World War, an exciting and unique time; a period of remarkable spiritual uplift and great idealism. Musicians tend to enjoy the harmonistic themes in his work. Other themes include the life of Christ, war, the Hawaiian coast, and Big Sur.

Faiss liked to use pen and ink, silverpoint, woodcut, and monoprint- but is perhaps best known for his mastery of encaustic (wax) painting. He has written several books and is famous for his color theories. The images in many of his paintings reflect his ability to start life anew after the war and reflect Faiss’s inner balance and peace.

There is one drawing of many in Valcamonica that shows human or humanoid figures with what look like halos around their entire heads. There are lines that may represent light coming out from these circles. They also rather resemble men in spacesuits or old-school SCUBA gear. Either would be rather strange. Proponents of the ancient alien theories say these are early depictions of alien visits.

Such an interesting topic Barb!  It always amazed me that some of these paintings managed to survive the scrutiny of the Church, but they seem to have done so by putting the UFO's in the background of religious themes.  The elongated hat in the picture that you included reminds me of the theory of special cone-shaped hats being worn by hybrid humans with possibly advanced brains in larger craniums.

This is an interesting topic, and what is especially unique about this picture is that of all the people in the crowd, only one person is looking up!

ilinda, yes, that is a bizarre and funny fact, that only onepersonwas looking at the sky. :) Perhaps a commentary on how few people were aware. :)

R.R. yes it is a mystery  that the Church would allow these paintings, seemingly under their noses. At the time, pre Renaissance, the Church supervised all content of all art forms.
Re the high cone head shaped hat, the religious dignitaries wore them. I suppose it is possible it might have disguised a high cone shaped head. :)
The pic you posted is a reminder of that shape in the royals headdress.

Remember Mel Gibson's movie Apocalypto and the alien-looking ruler? We just get a glimpse of him and I don't remember any commentary in the movie, or dialogue about him. Did not find a pic of him.

I haven't seen that movie, but after looking at the elongated cranium in the video that you linked, it makes me wonder how they were able to sleep on their backs, if at all!  LOL!  :)

R.R. speaking of Nefertiti I watched a recorded Science show about the bust of Nefertiti. Scientists were trying to figure out if it was a fake, planted in the archaeolgical site.  They couldn't seem to prove it was a fake or prove it was real but the paint was an ancient formula. Once they are able to carbon date the limestone (IIRC) they will be able to date the underlying structural layer...

Thinking - they needed a special indentation in their mattresses. :)
