About The Artwork

Night swimmer from above. Los Angeles. She would swim most nights at the same time. The gentle rippling sounds of the water offered a sense of calm and cleansed my being as one would gently lift a handful of water to the face. I could look down from the 8th floor of my Los Angeles apartment and the sounds were painted by the calming motion of this heavenly swim. Gracefully moving her body through the dark green water with such little effort as to barely break the surface. One could sense the toils of the day being washed away with every stroke. Could this, with all it’s feeling of effortless calm and excitement be captured ? Mid stroke, she is suspended in both space and time. There is nothing beneath, nothing above, just the light, daubed by her gentle currents . This ‘Night Swimmers’ series of photographs is inspired by this meeting of senses, the light and the water, it’s deep and calming effect on the soul. Limited edition No.6 of 9 from the series 'Night Swimming' 2014 Printed on exhibition quality Hahnemuhle Fine Art, Photographic Paper, signed, numbered and dated by the artist. Comes with a certificate of authenticity. Prints are available in different sizes by looking at the larger sized issue on my page.

Through an apprenticeship straight from school, Matthew Farrar developed his relationship with the lens and made his new home in the dark rooms beneath the old victorian railway station in Brighton, England. The relationship took an early twist as opportunities arose in his other love of music. His journey took him through many of the worlds greatest cities and the need to document his travels came to the fore, giving rise to a long awaited reunion with photography in it’s shiny new digital form. His work is an insight into how the eyes feed his mind, the deconstruction of structure into patterns and geometric form. A world of aesthetic values highlighted by shape and shadow, liquid and colour. We are granted access to perspectives that may otherwise have been missed. His abstractions show a clear distinction from photojournalism in the artistic approach to his composition. Minimalism, drawn and framed from the lure of colour and form, he cuts bold and striking segments from the pallet of all that is in front of him. Through his travels, the artist takes every moment to document the world as it flashes past. The varied landscape of cultures, through time zones of tradition and method. He shows us that everything we see around us has been designed and constructed with a purpose and a vision. There is art in everything. It is in the building blocks of our cities and speaks loudly of what has been, and indeed inspires what is yet to come. Currently Residing in Los Angeles, California.
