Francesca Goodman
(click image to enlarge)

Francesca is an artist working within the expanded field of painting; she is a conceptual painter exploring interdisciplinary practice. Her interest is paint and its relationship to surface.

Two distinct aspects of her work are exhibited, the material and the ethereal. She is exploring the question: How far can a painting be pushed and can it still read as painting?

‘Material matter’: Pictorial slabs are used to explore the notion of painting through structure and a physical process.

Ethereal work: ‘Paint as Surface’ and ‘Cave to Cube’ both use new media to explore painting’s possibilities within an expanded practice. The former looks at paint as a fluid surface. The latter echoes a technique of cave painting, exploring the properties of paint and air, whilst posing the question “where is the surface?”
