George J Farrah (American)
Born 1950 in Detroit, MI
Lives and works in Minneapolis, MN
George Farrah is an action painter with an impressionistic color sense. His paintings are created in series and are bounded by some loose organic rules: thick and thin paint, gestural line, or implied gesture. He references landscape, technology, and the figure. His paintings' surfaces range from airy to earthily dense and act as fields of narrative possibilities that the viewer completes.
George J Farrah holds a Master of Fine Arts Degree from Bard College, The Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York. He maintains an active exhibition schedule and his paintings are in numerous private and corporate art collections.
Farrah is also a poet, whose book The Low Pointing Stars has been published by Ravenna Press. His poems have been included as well in The Washington Review, The Columbia Poetry Review and numerous other publications.
