The highly polished surface of the mirrored steel gives the sculptures of Stefan Faas an additional, significant dimension. In addition to the form of the piece and its relation to the space around it, now reflection comes into play. The viewer and everything else around the piece is mirrored in the gleaming surface, becoming a part of the art itself. In a certain derived sense, its a reflection about ones own identity: who am I, and how do I as an individual relate to the rest of society? This depth of content stands in dialogue with the consistency of form, making the works of Stefan Faas into highly sought-after works of art with a timeless aesthetic. Quickly walking by them, all the figures appear to share a similar, an- thropomorphic appearance, but upon closer observation of the sculptures, very different personas begin to emer- ge. Recognizing the details requires a considerable degree of engagement on the part of the viewer, of course, in which case each perceiver will take in a different, unique range of experiences.
