ADAM FARRINGTON

A native of the Empire State, Adam Farrington 

received creative encouragement as a youngster from his artistic parents. His father is a calligrapher and his mother is a potter, so early exposure to art compelled him to work on his own projects from a young age. He recalls making "flood towers" when he was six on the family's property in upstate New York. He still enjoys making stuff in his studio home near the French Quarter in New Orleans and spends most of his creative time working with sheet metal. 

When asked about his current inspirations and materials, Adam says "I'm inspired by junk, I like society's cast offs, and the idea that obsolescence is just a lack of context."

One of the elements of folk art that appeals most to Adam is that "it's oblivious of all the false barriers" that surround more formal or traditional arts. You will see a mixture of new sheet metal along with salvaged pieces in Adam's work.
