Kristin Farr

Kristin Farr paints neon rainbow diamond magic. Taking popular, pop-colored, geometric shapes to another level, she infuses her paintings with good luck and good feelings. Recently, she's been researching "hex signs" found on 19th century Dutch barns, which were arguably used for either folk magic, or decoration. Kristin re-imagines the hypnotic patterns, rendering them in the florescent palette she is obsessed with. Through her work she aims to draw out some nostalgia or uncanny familiarity, using shapes and color combinations that could trigger a memory of a simpler time. For Culture Club, she has designed an installation of paintings from her "Magic Mountains" series, complete with two, comfortable "Hug Chairs" that can literally wrap their arms around you while you relax and enjoy the scenery and the days treats and delights.
