Faught uses textiles, collage, sculpture and archival materials with an eye to collective and personal history. Novelty buttons mix with greeting card text and other sentimental ornamentation mix in the artist's handmade textiles. Faught holds an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and his work is in the collection of the Institute of Contemporary Art (Boston), the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Rubell Family Collection and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
