artist. "His career in the visual arts has developed from beginnings
that are best left unprinted. In deference to his wishes, we leave
them unprinted here. Farnsworth’s art falls into the general category
of Sub-realism, a term that the artist claims to have invented, which
is a branch of neo-post-modern art that exploits the absurd underpinnings
of reality. But then what’s reality?"
