Geoff Farnsworth

Artist Statement/Biography

“My paintings explore a relationship between figurative and abstraction in order to meld unconscious probing and stylistic innovation with a meditative figural base. It’s important to me that the paintings work well as collections of shape, colour, texture, and energy; while also building a compelling image. Working with people and motifs from my personal world, I focus continuously on maintaining a balance between plan and accident, known and unknown, restraint and exuberance. My figures look out as much into mindscape as landscape.” (from the Artist’s website)
