Artist statement

Faraj is represented by Anna Zorina Gallery and McBride contemporain. "I make watercolour paintings with raunchiness, humour, tenderness and soul. I paint portraits and sexualized figures in varying degrees of abstraction often drawn from the world of erotica. My fluid style allows figures to emerge as deeply psychological and emotional beings with a full sense of their humanity. Recently my works have addressed issues of human rights, LGBTQI activism, feminisms and sex and body positivity. I depict people in such a way as to point to the value of our embodied experience and our relationships. I use a form of Neo-expressionism meant to be rewarding to experienced viewers as well as to those new to art. Formally speaking, I pursue lightness and a quality where forms sometimes dissolve like memories."
