Tessa Farmer

Tessa Farmer's sculptural forms and film work are at once darkly humorous and macabre. These are no Disney fairies with pastel coloured costumes: these fairies may bite or sting you if you come too close. Painstakingly made, these intricate creatures are the tormentors of the mini-beast world. Her works use our imaginations against us, invoking the nightmarish qualities of original folklore tales in the tortuous scenarios enacted by the gleefully wicked, but industrious sprites. 

Tessa Farmer has exhibited in solo exhibitions in Europe and in New York, as well as across Britain, most recently in London, where she has had solo exhibitions at The Crypt (with music by Amon Tobin) and at the Danielle Arnaud Gallery in 2011. Her work has appeared in group exhibitions at many prestigious galleries worldwide, including the Saatchi Gallery in London and The State Hermitage Museum, in St Petersberg, Russia. Tessa was born in Birmingham and is now based in London.
