ABOUT THE ARTIST
Ana Maria Farina paints using a gun––a tufting gun––along with needles, hooks, and knots. Repurposing a phallic signifier of violence, she conjures vibrant objects of comfort that inhabit a mystical pictorial space between abstraction and representation. Ana Maria Farina was born and raised in Brazil and is now based in the Hudson Valley, New York. She received her masters degree in Art and Art Education from Columbia University in 2016, and her MFA degree in 2021 from SUNY New Paltz. Ana’s work has been featured in many spaces throughout New York such as the Wassaic Project, the Garrison Art Center, the Dorsky Museum, Paradice Palase, Susan Eley Fine Art, among others, and her writing has been published multiple times by WHITEHOT Magazine. Ana is the 2021 recipient of the College Art Association Fellowship in Visual Arts.
