Farah’s prints and paintings allude to naturally occurring patterns, shapes and activity. They might be neuronal fragments embedded in a field of colour or organisms drifting in a fluid substance – the image as a petri dish. Or they might be simple cells contrasting with complex structures. Minute, individual marks built into a mass, a swarm, an entity.
Shifting scales suggest a view through a lens with varying degrees of magnification.
In a space somewhere between the abstract and the figurative, the images evoke the volatility and random trajectories of biological processes. They are about fleeting incidents and inconspicuous objects – found still lifes in flux.
