Lori Farist is a contemporary abstract and realist painter whose style is a juxtaposition of realism and abstraction that expresses the entirety of the human personality. Her series is a representation of a timeline of women who have helped transformed our country and are a collection of portraitures she simplified into black and white so the colors and shapes speak of the person’s abstract thoughts, ideas, and actions.
Ms. Farist earned her degree in Liberal Arts with a concentration in Fine Arts in 2002 and has furthered her education by taking classes and workshops to sharpen her skills. Her work has been displayed throughout Upstate New York with a recent piece entitled REDdress (portrait of Debra Haaland, US Secretary of the Interior) winning an Honorable Mention at the show “Portraits” at the Queen City 15 Gallery in Poughkeepsie. She is a member of the Broome County Arts Council and enjoys teaching workshops to share her love of colors, shapes, and representational art which unfolds the many layers of personality that contributes to a person. Ms. Farist lives and works in Upstate New York. https://www.facebook.com/lfarist
