“Farmer developed a technique for translating architectural images from his travels into painting compositions. A new compositional format emerged from his fascination with the compressed space of doorways, passageways, city gates and alleys as they opened to reveal further vistas. He used computer software to enhance color, heighten contrast and purge details. His manipulations were aimed at leaving only crucial colored and layered geometric shapes to define the space.

Farmer’s 2016/17 work, the subject of Still and Solemn Chambers, is based on his photographs taken inside temples, cathedrals and grandly scaled palaces in France, Spain, Cambodia, Myanmar, India, Laos and Thailand.

These works, and their photo-based, architectural antecedents, formally evoke a centennial tribute to Vorticism, the short-lived British modernist movement that was an outgrowth of Cubism. The angular and layered clusters of diagonal forms and elongated, single-toned color blocks also abstract a shattered visual reality.”
