ARTIST INFO

About 

Farcas’s artistic realm resides in the ethereal space between the delicate interstice connecting the realms of the visible and the invisible, the external and the internal, the outside and the inside. The artist amalgamates various facets of mythology, fairy tales, tradition, and her own personal encounters, inviting beholders to embark on a profound contemplation of the intricate convergence between reality and the boundless realms of imagination. 

The figures depicted in Farcas’ paintings exude robustness and passionate emotions, often caught in the midst of action in the suspended moment where everything can happen. In the frozen tableau of the canvas, a single moment pulses with the energy of potential and transformation, evoking the essence of a film frame like a moment suspended in time. The painting captures an action on the brink of unfolding, where every possibility lingers in the air like a suspended breath. The viewer’s imagination is ignited as the still image hints at the dynamic motion about to burst forth, inviting us to fill the gaps between frames with our own narratives and interpretations. In Farcas’ art, the artist masterfully encapsulates the enigmatic power of the suspended moment, where the boundaries of time and action blur, leaving us suspended in anticipation of what is to come. -Alice Zucca
