Devon Farber is a painter born in New York into a family of artists. He currently lives and works in New York. He attended the School of The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. His work focuses on a personal journey through the psyche, seeking an evolution of the spirit. He has shown his work internationally and in the US.
Throughout Farber’s work there is a reoccurring theme of the “self” fading away and returning to a blissful state of interconnection. He incorporates temporary materials into his paintings, such as charcoal or Instagram stories to highlight the transient nature of strife, mortality and impermanence. He also takes materials of temporary nature and brings them to a state of immutability. This concept becomes a focus in much of his work; blurring lines of personal separation, while emphasizing spiritual evolution by delving into the caverns of the psyche.
