Houston Fine Artist J Antonio Farfan is a Force To Be Reckoned With

Renowned Houston fine artist J Antonio Farfan is a force to be reckoned with.  The fine art work of artist Farfan ( http://artist.com/j-antonio-farfan/24/artworks/ )  are indeed mesmerizing, but when gazed at from different distances, a labyrinth of exquisite and intricate details unfold. At first glance, from a distance, the bold, energetic, almost explosive contrast of brilliant colors immediately fascinates the eyes, and the brain thirsts for more detail.  Upon moving closer to examine the fine art work, the complex ethereal details can be traced to a seemingly  microscopic level, which, from a distance, are not revealed.    Much like the Milky Way galaxy whose characteristics appear to be a dim glowing band across the night sky,  whose details cannot be appreciated by the naked eye, when one moves closer to any one of the heavenly bodies such as planet earth, it is only then that the details of the cities, rivers and mountains can be seen.  Similarly, from a distance, the magnificent fine works of artist J Antonio Farfan, such as “Hemisphere” and others, appear to be an intricately multi-layered work, which took many sessions of very precisely planned, metachronous applications of oil and acrylic, resulting in a profound motif.

“Hemisphere,” an acrylic and oil on linen work of art, appears to be timeless, and boundless. Upon a much closer view, the sublime layers of detail unfold.  What seems at a distance to be somewhat vague and entropic as the heavens may seem, clearly turns out to be a collection of precisely, accurately and distinctively executed brushstrokes, intuitively yet perfectly delivered. Take away any of those microscopic perfections, and the balanced assemblage of confluence of colors will irretrievably suffer. One cannot appreciate the true magic of the fine art “Hemisphere” until one dives in to witness the details, but, conversely, when one from up close studies the details, they cannot appreciate the true magic until they look again from afar.  Artist J Antonio Farfan has mentioned that “Hemisphere” may relate to a lobe of the brain.  Yes, from a distance, it could certainly resemble a cross section of a gyrus and sulcus of one hemisphere of the brain, and upon closer inspection, resemble the white matter, cell bodies of neurons and other cells.  For any viewer who looks carefully at the image of “Hemishpere” shown here, you will most likely agree that it could be both.  There may be discrepancy as to what one feels the painting represents, but likely we would all agree that it is a layered composition of exquisite balance and beauty.

This same paradox of understanding, requiring the microscopic view to understand the macroscopic, and conversely the macroscopic view to understand the microscopic, is characteristic of many of the awe inspiring works of artist J Antonio Farfan.  Other magnificent works of his include “Always Remember Today” (mixed media), “Underneath the Nothing” (mixed media), and “A Queen Bee” (oil).  Artist Farfan is a very eclectic artist, and has created works of varied styles and genres, all of which have been met with tremendous success among the many discerning collectors of his artistic masterpieces.

Artist J Antonio Farfan relates that the basis for his work is “iconographic language developed through research of medieval philosophy and early concepts of time.  This approach seeks fundamentals and relationships within an iconographic language that was not arbitrary but did have definite multiple meanings.  It is a creative process that seeks to move away from the purely aesthetic and into a painting approach that becomes a visual scientific explanation of the universe and humanity.”  ( http://artist.com/j-antonio-farfan/24/about/ ).

Artist Farfan received his Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts from the University of Houston.  He did a year of independent study in Paris, France.  His works have been shown at some of the finest art galleries in Houston, Dallas, New York, and Louisiana, and his art has been sought after by aficionado art collectors around the world.
