Roxanne Faber Savage is an award winning multidisciplinary artist. She specializes in printmaking, creating simple yet arresting visual narratives on a variety of media, including paper, metal and silk. In addition to the printmaking, Savage is a painter, photographer, and installation artist.
Roxanne’s work admirably evokes a wide range of emotions. Her use of color and form bring forth smiles and childlike delight while simultaneously encouraging a deeper exploration of serious questions. Savage is passionate about the plight of wild elephants, and has created work in support of a global ivory sales ban. This includes two solo shows, one at the Lionheart Gallery in Bedford, NY and the other at the Housatonic Museum in Bridgeport, CT, and her limited edition artist book, Elephas.
Roxanne’s exhibition and residency schedule is packed; additionally, she is teaching two intensive classes, one at the Women’s Studio Workshop and the other at the Truro Center for the Arts. Her approach is centered in celebrating life’s everyday events, much to the chagrin of the Women’s Studio Workshop who weeded all the gardens only to see Roxanne rescue particularly aesthetic specimens for studio décor and inspiration.
A persistent, high energy approach to life is reflected in both Roxanne’s work and her approach to instruction, as is a commitment to meaningful collaborations. Roxanne is professionally affiliated with Women’s Studio Workshop, The Boston Printmakers, Silvermine Art Guild, Center for Contemporary Printmaking, and The Lionheart Gallery. Residencies include Mass MoCA Artist Studio/ Makers Mill, North Adams, MA, Weir Farm, Wilton, CT and The International School/ Drawing/ Painting/ Sculpture, Umbria, Italy. She welcomes studio visits by appointment.
