Too late to turn back now: Maria Farrar


Ota Fine Arts is delighted to present "Too late to turn back now" by Maria Farrar, her first solo exhibition in Asia. Farrar was born in the Philippines and brought up in Shimonoseki until the age of 15. She then moved to London, England where she now lives and works. Farrar paints scenes derived from her everyday life or from fragments of memories. The captured moments are concrete and yet at the same time, they contain a sense of elusiveness and the feeling of a floating and expanding world. For this exhibition "Too late to turn back now", Farrar has updated her style. The ephemeral pictorial world has now become a denser scene, dominated by deep primal colours, their riot giving intensity to the image, exposing Farrar's curiosity as an artist diving into new worlds without turning back.
