Anoka Faruqee

Anoka Faruqee’s recent series, Moiré Paintings, explore moiré patterning created when at least two identical and transparent patterns are layered and slightly displaced. Faruqee generates this idea of interference – typically seen in magnetic fields, printing errors, and computer screens – by using customized trowels that rake paint across the canvas. She later sands and repeats this action, offering evidence of the physical act while simultaneously capturing transitory glitches. Here, in 2014P-15, Faruqee layers red, blue, and yellow rings to generate a radiant and pulsating work, resulting in a quintessential example of Faruqee’s prowess. Faruqee’s work has been exhibited in the U.S. and abroad at venues including MoMA/PS1, Long Island City; Albright-Knox Gallery, Buffalo; and Hosfelt Gallery, San Francisco. The artist lives and works in Brooklyn and New Haven.
