Just a bit more of a peak…

“The Snowball Effect”, (c) Bob Farrell, acrylic

Bob is a mainstay with the Berwick Art Association and I don’t believe has ever missed an event. Maybe a meeting or two, but never an opportunity to show. When we were doing our pop-ups, he was the person who arranged those.

Bob thrives on the unpredictable. Mostly on the found, and the experimental. Sometimes on the spontaneous. It’s not always easy to say because his other piece in the show called “Pick a Color”, a colored pencil and felt-tip pen piece, is as controlled as they get. So, who knows, it seems HE is always unpredictable.

“Process Artists engage the primacy of organic systems, using perishable, insubstantial, and transitory materials such as dead rabbits, steam, fat, ice, cereal, sawdust, and grass. The materials are often left exposed to natural forces: gravity, time, weather, temperature, etc”, and Bob usually, though not always, fits into this description.

The Sole City show is awesome. I put up the tags today, and I am a proud curator. Please check it out.
