Winnipeg: LKAP: Neil Farber

Lisa Kehler Art + Projects is proud to present Neil Farber | The Braided Stream – his first Canadian solo show in over a decade. The exhibition features 12 new paintings created through his current favoured process of layering paint, text, and collages in acrylic pouring medium. Since the beginning, Farber has possessed the ability to create deceptively simple characters of depth. In this new exhibition, a young girl acts as the protagonist. These rich, dense, messy, works reveal a new connection each viewing. Farber is going for exactly that. “My drawings and paintings have become more dense with characters and ideas over the years because I love the way that over saturation looks and feels…pushing that saturation level, and having the paintings be more than one kind of painting at the same time.”
