Biography

Nick Farhi’s gestural paintings and representational works use vivid colors and a naive style to stretch from the everyday to the sublime. At times they evoke friendship, as in Hug (2014), and at other times romance, as in the sublime outer-space skies of Fell in Love / Galactic Memory Number 3 (2014). His minimal drum paintings make novel use of the instrument’s skin as a circular canvas with gray scuffs, while worn, indented brass cymbals are also mounted as wall works. With its enduring faith in Romanticism, Farhi’s output possesses an exaggerated sense of innocence that is both charming and sophisticated.
