DYAMI FARNSWORTH In my paintings i like to investigate and develop surfaces. I like to create paintings that have clear 3 dimensional spaces, but in which the viewer can lose themselves in the small details which move their focus from the big picture to the the material quality of the work. I want to make pieces that invite the viewer to explore any part of the painting that seems interesting (I always find it very cool when someone discovers some new aspect of one of my works that i hadn’t noticed before). Basically i like to make things that make people ask, “I wonder how this was made?” I n my pai n tin g s i l ik e to i n v e s t i gat e a n d d e v e lop s urfa ce s .
