When seeking inspiration for this project, Farache looked at medical images of the brain and found that the longer he stared at them, the more they resembled clouds. He began to see all sorts of shapes in the ridges of the brain and lines that formed images of people, hands and animals.
Farache took this inspiration and created an image of the brain that has recognizable forms. His drawing is laser cut from 1/4" plexiglass, casting a shadow that creates a dramatic, thought-provoking piece.
Eric Farache’s work is informed by his ongoing observations and sketching, which he has maintained for the past 20 years. His drawings have become the backbone to his artistic practice, a continuing regime of sketching drawn from the world around him, which also influences his painting and photography.
After graduating from OCAD in 1994, he earned his MFA from the University of Leeds in 2000, and has continued to focus on photography while mounting exhibitions on a regular basis for the past 20 years.
