Organics by Firouz FarmanFarmaian
This Abstract Organic phase (2015-2018) belongs to a progression from a previous one by the artist, the Architectonics (2013-2015).
“I studied and reworked my approach to painting as my connection to the natural world progressively intensified. This allowed me to operate a transition from an architectonic based abstraction to an organic one.”
Firouz FarmanFarmaian first returned to paper studies with his series The NatureScapes (to be shown in Washington DC with Syra Arts Gallery Sept 2018) using pastel, aquarelle, gouache and crayon, researching new linearities inspired by movement and geology. He progressed back onto raw canvas introducing large Sennelier oil sticks and scouted Moroccan pigments and dyes. The effort has translated into a growing body of work including series such as Strata, Organics, Oceanic Asphalts, Seasons of the Land, Botanics or the Chapel Series.
