Edibeth Farrington always loved surfaces; that sense of the tangible in combination with an elusive quality. Farrington’s art fuses her internal world with the external world using color, marks, movement and visual texture to express her relationship with these two forces. Farrington aims to be both ambiguous and harmonious and to try and unite order and chaos. In particular, she is drawn to that space between these dichotomies to reach a reconciliation.
The Indigo Series:
Farrington loves Indigo and loves the natural world. Her Indigo series focuses on the birds (specifically Tree Swallows) that arrive at her homesite and begin their annual rituals.
“I hear their wings in my 100+ year old maples and oaks, fluttering and I see flashes of color. After a long winter, it’s the greatest gift.” Edibeth Farrington
