Louise Farnay

Dive into the deep oceanic abyss and immerse your senses in the calming and mesmerizing hues of blue in my recent reef-like abstract painting interpretations.

For me, my recent collections evoke a beautiful serenity and peacefulness that only the ocean can provide. Painting in oil, I am heavily influenced by the vast Western Australian coastline and drone photography. My work will hopefully evoke a deep serenity and peacefulness in you whilst also delving into your inner peace.

In contrast my quirky, yet playfully feminine abstract beach babes are mostly awkward and ungainly in their figurative composition, and may even stir up emotions of human frailty and vulnerability. At the same time, they represent our typical Australian beach culture.

I have recently started challenging myself further with oil and photorealism by painting feminine figures underwater, experimenting with underwater reflection, refraction, and distortion.

I have been exhibiting and selling my award-winning paintings to corporations such as Barclays Bank and to private collectors all over the world for over twenty years. I have received numerous awards for my paintings while residing in Tokyo and have held numerous solo exhibitions in Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh, Shanghai, Beijing, Sydney and Perth.

I hold four art degrees, including Graphic Design, Fine Art, and have studied Drawing Master Class at Slade School in London, sumi-e (traditional Japanese calligraphy) in Tokyo, and have recently completed an Advanced Diploma in Transpersonal Art Therapy.
