This RUN comes ready to hang.
"These paintings will bring you lots of magical experiences, good
fortune and positive vibes, guaranteed. This print is extra magical and
powerful because it’s the first 1xRUN print I’ve done that is mounted on
a wooden circle, which is the closest you can get to an original
painting, since the originals are painted on wood tabletops. I’m so
grateful to 1xRUN for using lasers and super powers to make this unique
print on wood possible.
I’ve been painting these Magic Hecksagons for years. They are related
to my family’s legacy in Pennsylvania Dutch country and “barn quilts” or
“hex signs” painted on rustic structures. I have a contemporary,
geometric, rainbow approach to this tradition, and I see my paintings as
neo-folk art. My process starts with buffing the tabletop, drawing the
pattern, and then choosing colors and laying them all out. Then I just
fill it all in with paint like a hypnotized elf." - Kristin Farr
ABOUT THE ARTIST
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!
