Farish is known for her emotive pencil paintings, conjuring moments of clarity amid the ambiguity of grays. The youngest of four siblings raised in sunny Jacksonville, Florida, during the 60s, she remembers the scary shadow cast by the Cuban Missile Crisis. She continues to wear her elementary school dog tag, a reminder that life is fleeting. After college she joined her parents in renovating her father’s North Carolina ancestral home, Oakforest. As the ninth generation to live there, she puts her faith in continuance through generations. She draws flowers and other organics, often past their prime, with great tenderness, portraying tiny delicate details next to harsh aggressive marks in pools of contradictions.
