Geoff Farnsworth currently lives in the Niagara Region, working out of a large communal studio space in downtown St. Catherines. This Niagara Artists Centre initiated multi space, has become an inspiring setting to create new work in varied size, motif, and perspective.
Geoff's paintings explore a relationship between figurative and abstraction in order to meld unconscious probing and stylistic innovation with a meditative figural base. It's important to Geoff that the paintings work well as collections of shape, colour, texture, and energy; while also building a compelling image. Working with people and motifs from his personal world, he focuses continuously on maintaining a balance between plan and accident, known and unknown, restraint and exuberance. His figures look out as much into mindscape as landscape.
Geoff's paintings have been shown in New York City, Washington DC, Minneapolis, Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary, the Niagara region, Thunder Bay, Vancouver, Sweden, Norway, and Trinidad.
