Elysium Gallery is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom artist talk with Beep 2020 winner Rosalind Faram.
Faram’s dynamic paintings are informed by wide-ranging research into visual culture. The work is led by a passion for ways of enquiry into painterly representation, conjuring tableaux that seduce and repel in turns, deconstructing her subjects, playing with surface, and creating spaces of uncertain dimensions. Seeing painting as a transition from an activity of mind into the bodily arena, she challenges the status quo with a dark acerbic wit and irreverent humour; delighting in meticulous detail and delicate layering which exists quietly amidst large, loud energy-led areas of rich colour and an almost pre-school simplicity of stuck-on fake jewels, metal foil, glitter, and buttons – resulting in an exuberant and sophisticated power-play across the picture plane. Taking informed risks, Faram confronts patriarchal art history with a playful confidence, reveling in the absurd, the beautiful, the banal and the menacing with the indefatigable curiosity and defiance of a truly contemporary feminist artist.
