Farraday currently has a one-person exhibition at the Nancy Dryfoos Gallery, Kean University Art Galleries, Kean University, New Jersey, November 12 - December 21, 2012.

http://www.kean.edu/~gallery/Exhibitions/farradaynewsome.html


The show, entitled Farraday Newsome: Emotional Terrain, consists of two free-standing boxes with high relief imagery and ten curvilinear, dimensional wall-hanging cloud tiles.

Farraday writes in her exhibition statement:


My idea for the show “Emotional Terrain” is to create a landscape exploring the duality of our emotional experience and understanding of life. I am interested in Carl Jung’s assertion that “Man’s life consists of a complex of inexorable opposites - day and night, birth and death, happiness and misery, good and evil.” Carl G. Jung, Man and His Symbols, p.75.

 

The hanging cloud tile forms are non-containing, untethered places: they are air. The boxes are grounded, contained space: they are structure.

 

The black and white backgrounds are opposites as well: light and dark. These dual backgrounds support imagery relating to life and death. The  fruit, songbirds, seeds, and eggs co-exist with an egg-eating snake, empty seashells, and shark teeth.

 

Interwoven with these opposites are ideas of time (watch imagery, ephemeral butterflies), chance (dice, playing cards), and danger (poisonous datura seed pods, thorny brambles).

 

My imagery is a drift of emotional symbols. I find it curious that when I am asked to explain the imagery I often feel like I am doing so after the fact (of it’s making), which makes me almost feel like an outsider. I strive to accept that the source of much imagery is the unconscious (nonverbal, evolutionarily very old), and is offered to the conscious (verbal, evolutionarily new) to examine and explain.

Photos above:

Left: Tomatillos on the vine, growing like little green tomatoes encased in papery husks

Right: In the kitchen making salsa verde with the our tomatillos and green jalapenos


It’s time to harvest our tomatillos and make green salsa! I use the recipe in Rick Bayless’ Authentic Mexican cookbook. Basically, you husk and wash the tomatillos, then boil them for 10-15 minutes. Put them in the food processor with chopped jalapenos (or other green chile), garlic, and chopped onion. Process until smooth but with a little texture. Put it all back in a saucepan and cook for about 10 minutes, adding a little broth if necessary (we use vegetable broth). Very tasty!!


The  Mt. Lemmon Marigold (Tagetes lemmonii ) is in full bloom now! This yellow-flowering perennial shrub  is native to southern Arizona. It’s leaves have a wonderful fragrance when you jostle them. Very citrusy, almost tangerine-like. We always brush it before sitting down to have coffee in the mornings. We find that this shrub really likes being near the vegetable garden, since it gets water regularly.

There will be plenty of our Birds on a Wire! These are glazed terra cotta  and stoneware birds epoxied to solid copper wire & meant for putting in your yard or a planter or whatever you dream up!
