FARSISS is the collaborative team of Fanny Retsek and Sandra Starkey Simon. Their shared love, respect and awe for living things and and a grave concern for the environment drives the content of their work, Fanny and Sandra also share a passion for traditional printmaking techniques and print’s history of activism.
Fanny and Sandra’s first collaboration was the opening of Magpie Studios in San Jose, California. When Magpie Studios split into Magpie South in Adelaide, Australia and Magpie North in California, their collaborative practice developed despite the distance. A rhythm of working and direction came naturally and their individual styles combined to form something altogether new.
