Holly Farrell Describes Her Charming Still Lifes as Portraits Without People

NEW YORK—Holly Farrell‘s charming, realistic paintings are on display at the Garde Rail Gallery at the Outsider Art Fair. Her collection of quiet, precise still life works contrast with the raw, bold, and unrestrained canvases of many of the other artists. From bow ties and heels to bar soap and a flowered sofa, the Canadian artist’s depictions of everyday objects have an all-American 1950s vibe and a beautiful shiny varnish.
