DANGEROUS LIASONS Artwork by Artist Fahren Feingold, “Wet Dreams” Solo Exhibition, The Untitled Space gallery, October 2021

Colorful, charismatic, canvases on chalky, champagne walls. Forceful, feminine form by Fahren Feingold. Her newest watercolor series “Wet Dreams” allow viewers to experience female nudity in positive prosperity.

Fahren Feingold, a watercolor artist commonly presented by our beloved Untitled Space, is dedicated to depicting the female form in all of its unique beauty. Wet Dreams is a solo exhibition where Feingold decides to “return to the subject matter that makes my heart sing” as she puts it.

The last time Blush heard from Feingold, we discussed her “High on Life” series through an online interview that you can read here, where she used watercolor to depict the “pure happiness” that surrounded her in nature and solitude. “I think I had really taken a break from the female form during the pandemic because I had such a block…” Feingold noted that she had a hard time working with people throughout the Covid-19 lockdown. After her High on Life series, Feingold says that “it all just came right back.”

Feingold’s use of color is based off of “balance and intuition”. The artist matches colors with “what the image of the model is ‘saying’ or ‘calling for'” allowing for her pieces to speak for themselves.

Throughout this series, Feingold experimented with a new technique of mounting her artwork with panels. Many of her pieces are two or more panels put together synonymously, to create a larger statement. Using multiple panels to create one piece is a difficult task that Feingold was able to complete with finesse. Four panels, painted separately, come together beautifully to create In My Feelings, shown below.

IN MY FEELINGS Artwork by Artist Fahren Feingold, “Wet Dreams” Solo Exhibition, The Untitled Space gallery, October 2021

“I direct my models to move like they’re floating. I just feel like it lends itself to the medium and allows it to move across the page. When I play with my composition, I’m definitely tilting them and moving them because I like to have as much on the page but also create interesting negative space.” Fahren Feingold says.

MANIFESTING RICHES Artwork by Artist Fahren Feingold, “Wet Dreams” Solo Exhibition, The Untitled Space gallery, October 2021

I asked Feingold about my personal favorite, Manifesting Riches, and received a story that I was not expecting.

Her model, a seemingly free-spirited friend, came up with the idea to incorporate money into the piece. Feingold tells us, “The model who I shot at the time had just come back from Vegas, I saw this wad of cash out of her purse and I was like ‘you should put this back in’.” Apparently, the model won a lot of money during her time in Vegas. She asked Fahren if she wanted to shoot with the money, because, well, who doesn’t like rolling around in a large pile of cash? “At the end [of the shoot] she asked if I wanted to do it, and I was like YES! I was playing with it so much because how often do you get to hold just a stack of hundreds?”

After having her fun, Feingold then had to figure out how she was going to capture that spirited moment in her painting. She connected the piece to manifestation. An action that truly embodies something bigger, stronger. Using ink to sketch the details of money before painting, the artist allows the viewer to be drawn into the well-fortune of this piece.

The Artist’s pick:

SERENDIPITOUS FLASHBACK Artwork by Artist Fahren Feingold, “Wet Dreams” Solo Exhibition, The Untitled Space gallery, October 2021

“I really love this one. I love how she is gazing at the viewer in a strong but soft way”. Feingold’s Serendipitous Flashback allows the viewer to look the piece directly in the eye, to see her in all her feminine glory.

Fahren Feingold’s series “Wet Dreams” is on view starting today, October 21st until November 13th at The Untitled Space. To learn more about Fahren Feingold and her artistry, visit her profile here.

  1. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  2. I’m not positive the place you’re getting your info, however great topic. I needs to spend some time finding out much more or figuring out more. Thanks for great information I used to be on the lookout for this info for my mission.
