Three new consignments have arrived at Vincent Farrell Gallery of perfectly preserved works of art, from a long time family friend and private collector. On public display for the first time since the early 1970's , each painting exhibits the the artistic depth and versatility of the artist Vincent Farrell.
"Lilacs", a still life floral, depicting a crystal vase filled with lavender, violet, white and blue colored lilacs, in the background the afternoon sun, seeps through partially closed window shutters, dappling a white table cloth in the foreground. A teapot and three apples rest to the left of the bouquet with an antique two toned ceramic bottle from the early 1800's placed on the right, all are framed by broad, thickly layered brush stokes of light and dark, as if to sculpt, by an artist's brush this high constrast floral, to life.
In the early 1970's Vincent Farrell left Laguna Beach , California and relocated to the small mining town of Bisbee, Arizona, only to stay for a few years before he eventually moved back to his beloved California. This floral was painted shortly after he returned to Laguna Beach and remains an exquisite example of artistic accomplishment.
A blue Sonora sky crowns the picturesque Guaymas, in the early 1970's. A fishing boat docked in the port outlined in bright Alizran crimson red trim is the focal point, as Farrell recreates the fishing boat's vibrant colors in the reflection of the port's waters. The scene is set against the town's main plaza and the San Fernando church, visible in the background. Local town's people frequent an outdoor eatery, where the fresh catch of the day grills on an open fire. Painted on location in Mexico, all the essence of the moment is captured in this painting by Farrell's eye for detail and exceptional draftsmanship
Below, is a painting of a bed and breakfast in Julian, California in the early 1970's. Julian was once a gold rush town in California in the 1800's. Farrell used strong, brush strokes of a multitude of green shades for the forest of trees in the background while two wooden structures are the only signs of the early California settlement.
