REVIEWS:
"...in her latest work area[code]...[Farr] juxtaposes timeless, postcard-perfect images...told through beautiful scenery, clever, perceptive visual links and small narrative reminders. The effect is at once intoxicating and eyeopening, even humorous at times. Farr, 28, is hardly a picture of the tortured artist, she's more like a clever activist who has a keen sense of how to get her message across."
