Fahren Feingold Dreamlike, Sensual And Bold Watercolor Nudes

Los Angeles native Fahren Feingold moved to New York at the age of seventeen to study Illustration at the Parsons School of Design. After earning her BFA between Parsons and Glasgow School of Art, she became a fashion designer moving between both coasts for clients like Ralph Lauren and J.Crew. Feingold currently resides in Downtown Los Angeles where she is pursuing her dreams of painting and illustration through her unique and ethereal watercolors.
‘Nude paintings are a beautiful part of our history in art and culturally. Yet there still remain a lot of people who are frightened by nudity (their own and others). I paint the female figure as others before me, and continue to push boundaries by exploring current political constructs of feminism through erotic imagery. My brushstrokes are languid as I paint in a wet style of watercolors, using many complimentary colors, which wash together in an almost ghostly spirit. This soothing technique, normally used for flowers and landscapes, I manipulate as a veil to present my direct and often bold messages about female sexuality, empowerment and equality.
When I paint a woman, I imagine giving back her emotional voice, where she may have felt stifled otherwise. I don’t look to paint people as they look, but rather as I feel them, which is why viewers will often not know the natural skin color, since I paint in watery aura like dreamy colors. When someone stands in front of my painting, I hope they really take a moment with it. I want my viewers to see feminine humanity, intimate beauty, and fearless ethos above all else, because that is the core of all women’.
Fahren Feingold’s new solo exhibition, curated by Indira Cesarine, is currently hosted at The Untitled Space Gallery, New York (Sept. 26 – Oct. 8, 2017).
