Street artist Faring Purth returns to Anno Domini for her 3rd solo show: Grand Grey, a collection of works on paper completed between 2016-2019, ranging in medium and scale, from hand held to larger than life.
Anno Domini // the second coming of Art & Design presents: Grand Grey by Faring Purth (NY)
“Grand Grey” is a collection of works on paper completed between 2016-2019, ranging in medium and scale, from hand held to larger than life. This exhibition integrates pieces created in both city landscapes (St. Louis, Berlin, NY, Montevideo) and the most wild of natural setting (the back-country of Uruguay and the Catskill mountains;) touching upon my personal experience of the great distances crossed internally/externally over the last few years, as well as the spirited energy I encountered along the way.
The most recent of this collection was created in the “Tablada Studio,” our new home in the Catskills mountains, that once hosted the late Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. The presence in these walls is undeniable and, I believe, nourished the work in many ways. This exhibition is a celebration of work that is not often seen in a gallery setting, pulp and scrolls that accompanied me on a epic chapter in my life. Now leading up to what will undoubtably be one of the greatest I will experience, the birth of my first child. May these pearls touch you as they have carried me. In exactly the way they are meant to…. ~Faring Purth, 2019
