About

Georgina Farah is a Bowen Island artist who was born in British Columbia and has lived in island communities for many years. Inspired by the West Coast landscape, Georgina's paintings reflect a single moment of time, inviting the viewer to contemplate the infinite nature of the landscape in contrast with the pace of modern living.

Currently, Georgina is developing a body of work that represents the luxury of solitude. Inspired by the rugged beauty of the coastal landscape, her work incorporates the capricious nature of weather with a cathartic, breaking light.

Using a layered technique where the medium is just as paramount as the paint itself, Georgina applies washes of colour until landscape and light converge. The landscape is abstracted into form and pulled into the light, creating complexity and simplicity.

Georgina studied art at the University of British Columbia and Emily Carr, with a previous B.Sc. in Geography earned from Simon Fraser University.

Georgina is very involved in the art community and has an active studio practice on Bowen Island, B.C.
