“2021” Michelle Farro

Michelle Farro is a painter and printmaker from New Jersey. She received her BFA from Laguna College of Art & Design and also studied at the Florence Academy. She considers her work a visual diary and finds interest in old photographs, overlooked items, and nature. Her work can be found in private collections around the world.


My work is based on personal memories, family photographs, found imagery, and still life motifs painted from direct observation. These two images are familiar moments- family gatherings and days of warm sun with our animals. The paintings are just out of focus, the way a dream or memory feels.

As a celebration that 2020 has ended and that a new year is here, FLATFILE has launched a new online program title, simply: “2021.”

We invited artists to participate through a rolling open call, which remains open for the entirety of this year. From these submissions, our jury panel carefully selects new works to present on FLATFILE, with new works added throughout all of 2021.

The price of each artwork is a flat $2,021,

a discounted price from the actual value of each work, offered here, exclusively.
