Farley Aguilar's paintings are focused on community and habitual modes of human behavior and addressing group identity, political allegiance and cultural ritual. Scenes in the work are drawn from found photographic imagery ranging from crowd scenes and portraits to historical reportage.
This new series depict portraits of children from wealthy backgrounds posing with toy horses, alongside images of children in labour – breaker boys and female operatives in the late C19th and early C20th. Inspiration is drawn from Thomas Piketty’s seminal 2013 book, 'Capital in the C21st'.
Aguilar uses all manner of brushwork, oil sticks and pencil to conjure these scenes in delirious lurid colour.
