Abstract Composition by Emily Farnham

In this horizontal oil painting, something between landscape and abstraction, various hues appear to thrash violently against each other yet come together in one picture. Emily Farnham was an artist, writer, and professor. She studied with painter Hans Hofmann in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Hofmann's influence can be seen in Farnham's layering of form and color, in how she organizes abstract gestures so that her pictures teeter between recognizable forms and abstraction.
