An Authentic Art Experience
"My art centers on the theme of finding beauty in discarded spaces. I equate these discarded spaces to my life as a black woman, person and human in general. My art explores the habit of discarding our sacred power, being present in life and life's journey, social consciousness and the frailty and power of simple, everyday objects and symbols around us. "
"I use the term Realist, Expressionist because I love and want the balance of order and chaos in my paintings. I think both styles are capable in their own rite. Realism allows me to present a tangible narrative so viewers can immediately identify with my pieces while the abstract expressionistic aspect represents the uniqueness of my eye and messiness of my mind. Both are the perfect complement to achieve an aesthetic that is digestible."
Farrah Lynch is a self-taught artist-maker who takes refuge in art’s possibilities. She manifests this in the form of paintings, prints, lessons, materials/supplies, art gifts, tv, and more housed in her Richmond, TX based home studio she calls A Rebel Eye Art Studio. Practicing art since one fateful, highschool art class in 1998 she has amassed over 200+ plus works of art since then.
A true vestige of her passion for the arts, A/R/E/A/ officially launched in 2013 to be a unique visual platform where conventional ideas about art are thrown out the window in favor of a more dynamic and unorthodox approach. Farrah has received numerous accolades since launching her studio. She was awarded a scholarship to attend a course at the premier Glassell School of Art in 2015, a month long solo exhibit at Houston's only African-American museum this past year, and has shown in several group art shows and exhibitions throughout the City of Houston, TX since 1999. Every year, Farrah also involves herself in art altruism by participating in the Center for Hearing and Speech's Via Colori Street Art Festival benefiting deaf youth, by contributing her unique style of street art to the event.
