Scrappy exhibition reveals artistic talent
6:00am Friday 6th December 2013 in News
WHAT is one man’s scrap could be turned into artist David Farrar’s treasure.
The 22-year-old led the project to build Narnia out of cardboard for the CS Lewis Festival in September.
And for one night only he is exhibiting his work in a special pop-up show this evening.
Mr Farrar has worked with Oxford’s scrapstore Orinoco and is now showing off his prints at the Coach House in Quarry Road, Headington, from 7pm to 9pm, in his first solo exhibition since graduating from the Glasgow School of Art.
He said: “I’m too young for a retrospective, but I still wanted to do a show that would bring together the work I’ve done over the last few years. I wanted to show people what I’ve been up to and see what they thought.”
Howie Watkins, of Orinoco, said: “It doesn’t matter what you give him to work with, David will make something of it.”
Mr Farrar’s work on show will be a mix of screen prints, etchings and lithographs.
The screen print is of an abstract piece based on a photograph of a pile of furniture he found in Belgium.
The Palmer Road resident works as an Oxford University grounds keeper.
