Through her work, Kristin Farr explores magic, rainbows, nostalgia, color psychology and positive vibes. Her Magic Hecksagon paintings are a nod to her family’s roots in Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. Her interest in folk art and folk magic contributes to her exploration of human-made objects that are believed to have powers or talismanic properties, and she adapts this traditional art practice with contemporary colors and designs. Color is central to her work and she is influenced by a common form of the neurological condition synesthesia in which letters and numbers are associated with different colors in her mind.
Kristin’s work has been shown throughout the Bay Area at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the Bedford Gallery, Anno Domini and Fifty24SF. She has created public art and murals in San Francisco, Taiwan, and Hawaii. She also produces documentary videos about artists for PBS and is an editor for Juxtapoz magazine, and she has a free iOS app, #FarrOut!
