Over the last few years, Fahren Feingold has been gaining steady recognition from collectors and critics alike for her ethereal watercolors that feature dreamy colors, loose brush strokes as well as hyper-sensual and ultra-feminine depictions of the female figure. The abrupt passing of the artist on September 26th, whose career trajectory was seemingly poised to be unstoppable, leaves a mourning community of fans and friends, all grappling to accept the new reality.

Feingold was born in San Francisco on September 19th, 1980. Her family relocated to Los Angeles in 1981. Her natural talent for art showed itself at a young age. She nurtured it as she grew, and — after winning the best artist award at her high school, the Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences in Santa Monica — she moved to New York City at the age of 17 to study art.

Ultimately she attended Parsons and the Glasgow School of Art. After earning her BFA, Feingold worked as a fashion designer for brands including Ralph Lauren, Nicole Miller, Splendid, Chaser, and J.Crew, among others. But, in 2016, she dedicated to cross over into the world of fine art. She has been represented by The Untitled Space since 2017, which is how I came to know, review, and enjoy her work.

She was featured in a number of solo exhibitions, group shows, and benefits presented by the gallery. Using a palette of bright but soft colors, and referencing her own photography as well as American magazines from the 70s 80s along with imagery from early 20th century French erotica she explored larger notions of female constructs in contemporary society. And yet it is her unusual use of color that has always stood out to me, and continues to do so now. Never shying away from mixing bold hues with delicate pastels, her work fused classical femininity with feminist punk rock sentiment.

“My paintings of the female figure expand the footprint of women painted by women, celebrating sisterhood and empowering female themes,” shared Fahren Feingold in the artist statement for her last exhibition Living For Love (2023). True to form, her work featured diversity; it celebrated the unique attributes of her models while maintaining a steady and recognizable signature style that was easily recognizable as hers.

“I have been honored to represent Fahren and work closely with her since curating her debut solo show in 2017, along with numerous group shows, benefits, and artistic collaborations. She was a constant inspiration and I am deeply saddened by her sudden passing. I hope that her sensitive, ethereal artwork continues to inspire future generations, as it inspired me.” writes Indira Cesarine, owner and director of The Untitled Space.

The Untitled Space will continue to represent the artist’s estate, with proceeds from future sales of her work to support some of the women’s charities she held dear, including feminist.org and equalitynow.org.
