The imagery in Farah’s paintings and prints alludes 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-life’s in flux.
