Fran paints in oil on canvas, she completed a BA in Fine Art at Birmingham City University in 2011.
The Dorset landscape, sea scape and sky speak for themselves. Still life is the exploration of the ordinary bits and pieces of life that make up the landscape of a home: pairs of shoes, glasses and half empty bottles, fruit in a bowl. I take such objects and arrange them in ways that appeal visually and have resonance. These objects and arrangements are metaphors, they stand as proxies, and can be read as actors on a stage. As artist, I am the set designer and director. The audience can read the paintings however they like, by bringing their own life experiences into play.
Fran will hold a “Meet the Artist” event on the mezzanine floor on Tuesday 2nd May from 3.30 – 5.30pm, join her far a chat and a glass of bubbly. !
