G Fine Art is thrilled to initiate the 2016-17 year with A Different Country, an exhibition of new work by Rachel Farbiarz.

A Different Country is a simple phrase, yet evokes the complexity of contemporary life. Today, war, death, and cultural clashes are ubiquitous. This onslaught of horror is bewildering, and the news coverage that documents it exposes us to the almost unfathomable burdens of our fellow man. With A Different Country, Farbiarz, who was a student of political philosophy, attempts to critically deconstruct how we experience depictions of conflict. By analyzing historical source material, her drawings acknowledge the persistence and tenacity of global violence. In doing so, Farbiarz urges us to bear witness to the seemingly endless cycles of forced migration and mass slaughter that accompany cultural conflict.

Works in A Different Country combine hand-drawn elements with collaged historical and contemporary images. The resulting tableaux achieve a palpable emotional intensity in keeping with Farbiarz’s deeply personal artistic practice–one senses the touch of her hand and the ruminations of her mind in every composition. In keeping with a storied lineage of evocative, oppositional artworks, including Gericault’s The Raft of the Medusa and Picasso’s Guernica, depicted figures in A Different Country demonstrate a range of extreme physical gestures.

Their apparent anguish, toil, and sorrow encourage viewers to empathize with their fellow man. Farbiarz thus asks us to affirm their struggles as our own. Of her artistic practice, she asserts: “I see my work as coming out of a moral tradition…maybe it’s about situating myself within the world.”

We hope you will join us to celebrate Rachel and her extraordinary body of work.
