“I want my paintings to be a haunted living presence that reveals to the viewer passion, intellect [and] mystery and that changes with each day’s new light,” says painter Farrell Brickhouse.
Working primarily in oil on wood panel and in gouache on canvas, Brickhouse applies paint in a thick impasto that shows evidence of his process. Daubs of paint congeal into loosely defined figures whose indistinct forms and lack of specific identities give the work the sense of being archetypal.
