James Wille Faust visual art review 

You may have seen James Wille Faust's public sculpture on view at the Indianapolis International Airport and at other locations. If you're not familiar with his work as a painter, the current show at the Magdalena Gallery provides a good introduction. Faust is an artist who takes full advantage of recent advances in digital printing technology. A superb digital reproduction (or "archival pigmented print") of a painting he completed in 1998, "Earthly Arrangements," demonstrates how digital technology can complement an artist's work by making museum-quality prints accessible to the general public - even if the originals hang elsewhere. Although Faust still prefers painting with an actual brush, he does take advantage of new technologies in terms of composition and it serves him well. In the digitally painted (and printed) "Flower and Vase Series," composed in his studio on the banks of the White River, there's a strong metaphorical component rooted in a genuine appreciation of the natural world. Through July 20; 317-844-0005, www.magdalenagallery.com.
