Recent works from the artist’s ongoing series of Moiré Paintings foreground the début of two new series: the Circle Paintings and the Wave Paintings. By triangulating all three bodies of work Faruqee galvanizes her systematic experimentation with color, perception, and the limits of technological precision. Her simultaneous shift towards larger-scale canvases intensifies the somatic experience of varying retinal patterns.
