Artist Talk - David Farrar

On March 9th I attended an artist talk with David Farrar. He graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 2013 with a focus in painting and print making.  He has worked in a variety of mediums including sculpture and most of his subjects to be captured are already made objects that he can manipulate in order to give the objects new identities. He typically likes to work with wooden objects that sometimes break down themselves into new forms. Farrar uses wooden pallets with variations of lights behind them in order to create shadows on surrounding walls. He also uses a technique similar to this but with natural lighting. He enjoys using everyday objects in a "dysfunctional manner." Over all I enjoyed the talk but I really liked looking at his portfolio to see even more of the works he has produced over the years.
