Artist Fahren Feingold’s ‘Living For Love’ Exhibit Supporting Women’s Mental Health Org.

Artist Fahren Feingold, “Look Deeper” Artwork featured in Art4Equality Benefit Exhibition + Paddle8 Auction presented by The Untitled Space, January – February 2020

Our fave NYC gallery, The Untitled Space, is holding a special exhibition and auction, from January 30 to February 8, called ‘Living For Love’. Created by artist Fahren Feingold, this exhibit is presented in partnership with the SeekHer Foundation which supports women’s mental health. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), women are twice as likely as men to suffer from mental health disorders. This exhibit is a timely response to an urgent crisis.

Featuring 25 unique works including several new releases, a portion of proceeds from the sale of each artwork will be donated to SeekHer Foundation, a non-profit advocacy project of WellSeek, a social impact collective that is reimagining women’s wellness in our workplaces and communities. SeekHer Foundation is on a mission to bridge the gender gap of mental health through advocacy, research, and support to empower women to thrive in their work and lives.

The benefit auction features a vibrant collection of works on paper and panel by artist Fahren Feingold, who has become known for her ethereal feminine watercolor paintings that emphasize the female gaze through fluid brush strokes using her signature wet-on-wet technique. The artist, who has been represented by the gallery since 2017, has been featured in a number of solo exhibitions, group shows and benefits presented by The Untitled Space, and is featured in numerous notable international collections.

In 2017 The Untitled Space presented her debut solo show FAHREN FEINGOLD, followed by her 2018 solo show, PEEP SHOW, and her 2021 solo show, WET DREAMS presented at the gallery’s location in Tribeca, NYC. She has additionally been featured in the gallery’s group shows REBEL, INNOVATE, UNTITLED, BODY BEAUTIFUL, IRL Investigating Reality, ONE YEAR OF RESISTANCEUPRISE / ANGRY WOMEN, The Female Gaze on Love, Lust & Longing, and more.

Celebrated as “a trailblazing artist on a meteoric rise” by Vogue, Fahren’s watercolors have steadily gained recognition from collectors and critics alike for their sensitive, dreamlike colors, graceful brush, and rendition of the female nude. Through her erotic depictions, the artist gives new voices to women of the past and present while exploring larger notions of female constructs in contemporary society.

“Through my own journey with mental health, I am constantly seeking out ways to expand and be more empathic,” said Fahren in a press release about ‘Living For Love’.

“In doing so, I have created new circuits of understanding, patience, and compassion. Opening my eyes to the beauty and love that exists within me and around, my paintings act as a quiet dagger of truth, exposing the beauty of the feminine form from the female gaze, emphasizing the female body as a great thing to behold, free of judgement and objectification. My paintings of the female figure expands the footprint of women painted by women, celebrating sisterhood and empowering female themes.”

As the SeekHer Foundation explains on their website, the disparities in addressing mental health issues for women aren’t just happening to us, they are happening at a disproportionately higher rate for a reason.

“Women are not made to feel safe in their daily lives by the cultural ideals, social constructs, and power structures in place. It’s having a severe impact on how we are able to have agency — within our bodies, roles & identities,” the site explains.

Together with Fahren Feingold’s artiwork that focuses on redefining and celebrating femininity, this exhibit is a welcome conversation in a culture that is ripe for reform when it comes to mental health.
