Heather Farrell
Title : Flora and Fauna
Materials : Mixed media on canvas
Date : 2020
Dimensions : 3′ x 4′
Description : I view imagery and the symbolism of snakes as a rebirth, a reinvention to a better self. The shedding of old to make way for new. The beauty and grace of nature always inspire me. The compartmentalizing of the flowers is a backlash against the idea of nature ever being limited or reduced to humanity’s containment of nature. The push and pull of containment and freedom is ever present in our human experience and I use nature as a way to illustrate this notion.

Heather Farrell works primarily with pastels on paper. This medium works well for Farrell because it allows her to work more loosely and enjoy the art-making process more. Farrell often finds inspiration from nature elements and aims to address ideals surrounding beauty and the search for perfection in today’s society. Farrell often observes this in the bombardment of internet/social media images. For Farrell, the search for perfection takes a life of its own and often leaves people feeling empty, as if certain ideals of beauty can never be fully realized. Farrell especially finds it interesting and disturbing that as we become slightly more advanced we in turn try to change nature and natural beauty; bend it to our will for our own needs.
