Fara Thomas is an Iranian American artist whose exploration of colour, texture, and reflection invites viewers to explore beauty and challenge boundaries. Thomas's paintings consist of layers of handmade pigments created from semi-precious stones and organic dyes suspended in epoxy resin on wood panels.
As a form of energy, color stimulates our perceptual processes, acting as a vital first point of impact. Upon further observation, come the subtle depths and textures allowing for more nuanced expression. Thomas is interested in creating complex compositions with overlapping elements and intersecting layers of space. The work explores the intrinsic relationship between color and light; it challenges audiences to reconsider their own perceptions and slow down their interpretations. Depth pulls the viewer in, while reflections push the viewer to go deeper, inspiring audiences to ponder, imagine and feel.
Thomas has regularly shown her work in annual group shows at the Thomas Anthony gallery, Signature Gallery, Ocean Blue Gallery, and Kahn Gallery, as well as SCOPE Art Show during Art Basel Miami. Her latest group show, Luxembourg Art week, took place virtually during the pandemic. Most recently, Thomas held solo exhibitions at Saatchi Start in 2021 and 2022. Her work is commissioned and collected internationally.
