An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.

I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.

The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Judith Farr.

Judith Farr (London, 1981) expresses herself through her paintings; a few years ago she started making abstract investigations so as to develop her own visual language. This year she’s begun an MFA at the Open College for the Arts (UK) in order to continue exploring and expanding on her practice.She uses a combination of automatic drawing, colour, patterns and textures to explore her subconscious, often with a touch of humour.

‘I use my subconscious to investigate painting and drawing, it acts as a narrative that allows me to create images. I try to break my own self imposed rules and surprise myself. I explore the conflict between the need to control an outcome and the desire to let go, and therein I find the unexpected.’

She is currently living in Catalonia, Spain with her partner and daughter.
