Faring Purth








In contrast to the femme fatales and model-esque classical beauties found in many paintings, Faring Purth’s female characters appear decaying and decrepit at a first glance. Splotches of color coalesce to form figures caught in the cycle of life somewhere between death and rebirth. The protagonists of the paintings appear to be in a state of transformation; they reference the generative powers of femininity rather than painting the woman as a beauty icon. Via HiFructose.
