about

Francie Brown is a sculptor based in Bath and currently the graduate artist in residence at 44AD Gallery and
Studios. Francie’s practice centres around the
amalgamation of ceramic vessels, soft sculptures and paintings to create playful environments. Which act, almost as sets, playing out scenes of the domestic space.

 

The role of play and intuitive making are essential to the construction of these sets. In addition, play is intrinsic to the

aesthetic decisions made when building the ceramics vessels. Influenced heavily by Roman pottery, Francie pushes these classical forms towards a farcical reflection of the traditional utensil. With impulsive decisions being vital to the sculptural process and aesthetic choices.

 

The result is a celebratory assortment of colour, playful pattern and texture. By engaging with the objects, the viewer is encouraged to recognise the connection between shapes and domestic rituals that play out in our own lives.
