About The Artwork

From the original 'Wave' series I was given some guidelines for exploring the photograph and producing a set of colours with the intention of pushing the depth and forming a richer abstract to the work. Are you seeing the sea and clouds or the mountains or both. Are you underwater or is there a wave of an energy reading. Quote "I realize I gravitated to it because I saw it as something you could potentially mis-identify. I played with the pic (I do this with any image that inspires me to be further inspired and to figure out my attraction) and realize now why I liked it so much - when you alter the temps and color saturate, it becomes a richter-esque abstract but Better! lol. Could be a wave, an energy reading, sunset behind mountains, close-up on a sliced agate, etc. I love that it has mystery. In my mind, your composition has everything a 2-D piece should have - full, glorious color with areas of absolute blacks, greys and a pure light source you can't help but be riveted by. All this because the original photo is so good. Just like the original wave (and the "real" ocean!) it's a mesmerizing paradox: energetic and tranquil all at the same time. And, has so many tiny details for the eye to consider and explore." Printed on a high quality Premium Luster Photographic Paper, these Wave Colours are produced as a Limited edition 3 of 5 signed numbered and dated by the artist along with a certificate of authenticity.

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.
