Anoka Faruqee

The Visible Spectrum

8.3 x 11.4 inches; 120 pages; 2017

The Visible Spectrum presents influences and inspirations, as well as a preoccupation with color. The idea of a spectrum or continuum exists as a philosophical counterpoint to polarities: the source imagery in the book is wide ranging, with unexpected connections. With a text by the artist. Published by Secession (Vienna, Austria) and Revolver Publishing.

Field Notes

7 × 7 inches; 92 pages; 2010

This book documents the making of two of Faruqee’s paintings: “Equator” and “Corbelled Arch,” both 2010. A series of studio photographs catalogues the laborious practice of mixing dozens, sometimes hundreds of subtly shifting colors for each painting. The book tracks Faruqee’s disciplined yet surprisingly freehand painting process, as she repeats a single handmade motif across a large surface on subtly increasing curves.
