Painting In Response To Life’s Adversities And Euphoria
Many of Frances' landscape paintings have been sold at commercial galleries. Her work has integrity and a subliminal message behind them. She paints prolifically and in a series based on the response to emotion.
The landscapes are painted through the pathetic fallacy of the weather. The painting process (flow) is part of her own personal journey of self-discovery and to help her process life experiences. She paints through the emotion she feels or felt and this is conveyed through the way she applies the paint and choice of subject matter.
Music evokes strong emotions and memories within Frances. The choice of song depends on the feelings she wants to convey. When you hear the music and the lyrics, you feel you are not alone in the suffering and in the joy of life. What is it when a piece of art gives you goosebumps or brings you to tears? Could it be that we have a human connection that goes beyond what we see or hear? Is this a hidden communication that occurs between artist and viewer that goes straight to our inner essence? These are questions Frances asks herself when she paints and she endeavours to try to answer these through her work, so others may benefit.
Frances believes her paintings are powerful and are question the viewer to reflect on their own existence and their shadow self. Her intention is to convey the encompassing feeling inside your inner core, where Frances connects to another human being. Frances believes an artist can express the powerful emotion through their art form that can uplift your soul and reconnect you with your inner essence. Is it the connection of this inner essence which is universal in human beings? Frances is interested in the metaphor of images and symbols to express the above.
A lot of Frances' artwork has been a response to major events in her life.
