Aromatic Landscapes: Cathleen Faubert, Art 365

Cathleen Faubert, Norman
Art 365 Project: Accords & Discords

Fabuert received one of five Art 365 awards of $12,000 to produce new artwork for the Art 365 exhibition.

Scents bring back memories. Aromas surprise and intrigue us. Motivated to explore the olfactory role in our experience of place, Faubert collects and distills material from Oklahoma’s distinct eco-regions. Previously working primarily in photography, Faubert has trained her nose so she can translate her experiences of Oklahoma through fragrances. Using aroma chemicals in conjunction with collected components, she creates imagined, aromatic landscapes for viewers to explore.
