Diana Farfan “Bread and Circus” Solo Exhibition
The Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery presents a solo exhibition of work by artist Diana Farfan. Farfan, born in Bogotá, Colombia, received her BFA at the National University of Colombia and her MFA in Ceramics at the University of South Carolina. Her surreal ceramic and mixed media figures include wide array of ceramic toys, marionettes, puppets, and dolls. Farfan’s work has been shown and awarded on an international scale.
This exhibition, like much of Farfan’s work, is inspired by her experiences between Colombia and the United States. Farfan was frustrated as she struggled to find her own political beliefs in a permeating but unsatisfying world of mass media. She says, ““Bread and Circus” embraces some aspects of my search for answers - the relationships of nation and identity; of passion and intimacy; of imagination and conflict; and most importantly of citizenship and consumerism. “Bread and Circus” does not intend to explain these relationships, but instead opens the curtains to these intersecting universes and welcomes your own interpretation.”
Diane Farfan’s “Bread and Circus” Solo Exhibition will be on display in the Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery October 23 through November 24, 2014. A reception will be held in the gallery at 4:30 pm on November 23. Join us for this exciting exhibition of contemporary art!
