Nicola Farquhar

b. 1972, New Zealand

Nicola Farquhar (1972, Hamilton) graduated from Elam School of Fine Art’s MFA program in 2009. Recent exhibitions include: Discoveries, Art Basel Hong Kong (2014); Method and Gesture, Utopian Slumps, Melbourne (2013); New Revised Editon, City Gallery, Wellington (2013); and Porous Moonlight, Papakura Art Gallery (2013). In November 2015 Farquhar will participate in Necessary Distraction: A Painting Show at Auckland Art Gallery (curated by Natasha Conland).

Farquhar’s energetic paintings are complex terrains that map the materiality and biology of both the human form and the painted surface. Drawing on compositional conventions of traditional portraiture, patterning, and the abstract language of scientific diagrams (especially those that describe the movement and effects of light), Farquhar’s paintings are part formal studies in space, part sci-fi bodies, part chimerical landscapes.
