Dolly Faibyshev, explores a self-described “vicarious fantasy of America”, through her first-generation relationship to her Russian roots. A self-taught photographer, Dolly’s images reflect her obsessive sense of color and form and her unconventional humor. Her first major series, Palm Springs, captured the anachronistic charm of iconic Palm Springs neighborhoods, resulting in exhibition and her publication, Palm Springs, Mid-Century Modern. She continues to examine themes rooted in Americana with her series Best in Show, a quirky look at Show Dogs and their handlers, and her portfolio continues to grow with her exploration of rodeos and nightclubs. Dolly Faibyshev was exhibited at the 2011 Verge Art Fair in Brooklyn and the 2011 Art Hamptons International Art Fair. She has been exhibited in several group shows in New York City, including Finch & Ada’s The Pleasure is All Mine and When Will We Grow Up. Her work was also featured and collected at the 2011 Slideluck Potshow Benefit Auction, and is currently on display at the South Street Seaport Museum in New York City.
Part of the Best In Show Series, Pink Pants Poodle was taken at a Pennsylvania dog show in November 2011. In 2012 I attended my first Rodeo. The most exciting part of the show was watching the bulls eject cowboys as if they were little toys into the air. Rodeo Man is one of these moments.
