The latest exhibition in this long-standing showcase for regional contemporary art focuses on the intriguing three-dimensional art of this emerging North Carolina artist. Farnsworth’s hand-carved figurative sculptures encapsulate the artist’s interests in character, story, craft, mechanics, composition, empathy and social commentary. But the artist sees his work as far more than sculpture – he fills the roles of the architect, storyteller, and cinematographer to construct detailed, immersive experiences that lead the viewer deep into a visual narrative. As he puts it, “I create lush, emotionally charged rabbit holes to fall into and explore.” Organized by HMA.
