Jackie Farkas

Jackie takes a raw, gestural approach to abstract painting; working in the style of many male painters from the mid-century, she paints in a machismo mode in an attempt to reclaim the process & rewrite history. She studied studio art in the Bay Area, earning a B.A. from U.C. Berkeley & an M.F.A from Mills College. Jackie now lives in Los Angeles, where she continues to work in the studio & push her process.
