Heather Farrell
Title : They Battle For Beauty But They Already Are
Materials : Mixed media including Swarovski crystals on birch board
Date : 2020
Dimensions : 24″ round
Description : Why do we battle with each other? To what end and to only realize we battle ourselves without realizing the beauty that lies in us. I’m highlighting superficial beauty with the use of crystals as we do often fight each other for material wealth and resources. The beauty is for something deeper though and the battle is really to get to a deeper truth within.

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.
