FRAN IFOULD SNAPSHOT EXHIBITION
14 October—12 November 2016
Artist Talk, Thurs 10 November at 11.30am
Artist’s Books by Fran Ifould
Some may well remember Fran Ifould as half of the duo making and retailing
Tallaganda Pottery on the main street of Braidwood during the 1980’s and 90’s, or her contributions to the public art program in Goulburn with installation of the mural adjacent to the old graves on Cemetery Street and the Big Ibis at the Waste Management centre around 2000.
Recently, Fran exchanged clay and signwriting paints for an art practice with paper. Following completion of a ‘Masters’ at the Canberra School of Art in Printmedia in 2008, she has maintained a keen exploration of environmental and social issues in her art practice theme. Print and Book making techniques, natural dyeing and use of inks on heavy paper, all feature in this most recent work made to be displayed at the World Health Organisation’s conference in Malaysia on the theme of Health and Well Being in the Urban Environment.
Fran’s art practice in the countryside of Braidwood includes regular exhibitions, workshops, especially in remote NSW. Her interest in self sufficient farming and gardening are influences obvious in her textures, colours, themes and format of this recent work.
