Frances Aviva Blane in The Glass - 'Draw you in'
News from The Glass website - 'Draw you in', September 11, 2014 by Caroline Simpson.
London-based British artist Frances Aviva Blane’s show Deconstruct is currently on display at De Queeste Art Kunstkamers, Belgium alongside work by Francis Bacon and Louise Bourgeois with each artist each having a room to themselves in the gallery. Blane’s Deconstruct is composed of a series of watercolours and charcoal work on paper, which are, as critic Corinna Lotz comments, “not an easy on the eye option”, adding that they have “power to draw you in. Whether you like it or not.”
Blane is a brave artist whose confident and powerful paintings and drawings examines and confronts terrains of the psyche others avoid. She now talks to Glass about her work and her latest exhibition, which we recently previewed, offering a privileged and fascinating insight into her approach and method.
