Laurel Farrin

Laurel Farrin is an artist working on abstract paintings, drawings, and videos using visual structures of comedy—incongruity, awkwardness, and disruption—in order to elicit empathy for human predicaments and satirize recent political shifts toward autocracy. Farrin is an associate professor at the University of Iowa. Past residencies include the Roswell Museum and Art Center, Yaddo, the Millay Colony, VCCA, and the Atlantic Center for the Arts. Her work has been exhibited at Hallwalls, the Roswell Museum, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Bronx River Art Center, the Des Moines Art Center, Lesley Heller Gallery, Bemis, and the Washington Project for the Arts.
