Jeremy Fahringer

I received a BA in Art and Linguistics from Swarthmore College in 2006.  I’ve lived in West Philadelphia since 2007.  My work has been influenced by ink painting, graphic street art, and color field painting.  I have in the last six years focused on abstracting memories and investigating the ways that time changes them.

I paint with ink and acrylic on wood and boards prepared with gesso.  The work is process-driven and involves layering paint repeatedly and removing the resulting washes and imagery with sandpaper and liquid to create evocative atmospheres.
