My name is Faren. LIKE FAHRENHEIT.
I was named after a character on The Young and the Restless. The young woman had amnesia and didn't know who she truly was. Truthfully, I think we all lose ourselves at one point or another. We question who we are and why we are here.
Painting has brought me back to my truth and I create with the intent for others to remember the truth of who they are.
Art is a spiritual experience for me. It has evolved from my earliest memories of growing up, never quite feeling like I belonged. I questioned the boxes that we put ourselves in. Life happened, challenges ensued. As a teen, I started to use art as a way to distract from anxiety and uncomfortable emotions, to find my truth, and to work through the grief and loss of my father. Using art to process questions that arose: Who am I? Why are were here? Why do souls leave suddenly? What do I do with this shattered feeling?
This belief and discovery resonated with me: we are souls residing in a human form - We are Love - We are Light - We are intrinsically "good" and whole, within our core. As we live here we forget. We lose hope, we experience emotional pain and we fall for illusions. We can put ourselves back together with time and practice.
I paint as a reminder of our true essence, our origin, our belonging, Our Oneness - what we have in common as humans.
I hope that experiencing my art can remind you that you are Divine. You have the answers and the power within you, at all times; we simply have to uncover it, harness it, believe it, and Live it.
