The Painting Center presents ‘Worlds Without Rooms’, the first solo exhibition for New York-based artist Alannah Farrell, running from March 26th to April 20th, 2019.
Worlds Without Rooms features over a dozen paintings of the artist’s close-knit community of friends in their interior spaces. Each painting illustrates personal struggles and victories for the sitters. Some are undoubtedly connected to the careers that are a source of income for them and therefore their security lies in these spaces. Many are working in creative fields, or odd jobs to make ends meet. Although their worlds are personal to them, Farrell introduces us to them intimately, either in imagined or actual spaces.
