Georgina Farah is a Bowen Island artist who is inspired by the unique qualities of the West Coast landscape. Her work is informed by a deep appreciation of the surrounding environment and a respect for First Nations’ histories with the land. Georgina’s work attempts to reflect our connection to the coast, moving beyond the timeframe of our own existence and suggesting an infinite relationship. Her work is ethereal, often with a cathartic, breaking light.
Recently, Georgina has been exploring the mountain landscapes of the Howe Sound region, focusing on the coastal mountains along the Sea to Sky highway.
Using a layered technique where the medium is just as important as the paint itself, Georgina applies washes of colour until landscape and light converge. The landscape is abstracted into form and pulled into the light, creating complexity and simplicity.
Georgina studied art at the University of British Columbia and Emily Carr, with a previous B.Sc. in Geography earned from Simon Fraser University.
Georgina has an active studio practice on Bowen Island, B.C.
