Geoffrey Farmer (b. 1967, Vancouver) lives and works in Vancouver. He studied at the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, Vancouver, and the San Francisco Art Institute, San Francisco, California. Farmer borrows elements from conceptual and installation art, combining poetry and social commentary with specific cultural histories and memories. He presents these findings in a new and unfamiliar light, creating playful and visually entrancing works.
