For this body of work, all of the colors that were used came from my memories. I would sit in meditation and put myself back in specific surroundings and the first thing that would come up were the colors.

About the Artist


Portland, Oregon-based painter Mia Farrington (b. 1979) paints elliptical pools of color influenced by the bodies of water that surrounded her growing up in rural Vermont. Mia’s deliberate palette allows her forms to vibrate across her surface with each edge and interaction thoughtfully considered. Her work provides an introspective moment for reflection on relationships and perception.
