Momento 

 

A series of works by Frances Peel

 

 

Frances is art educator and artist living on the South Coast of England. She graduated in 1988 from Leicester Polytechnic with an Honours degree in Graphic Design having specialised in illustration and went on to attain a post-graduate in art education from Birmingham Polytechnic and subsequently spent 26 years teaching Art. In 2015 she resigned from her job in order to focus on her own practice as an artist and surface pattern designer.

 

“Teaching others has been essential to developing my own visual language. The daily task of reflecting on others work has taught me to be constantly open to the exploratory nature of producing art and I now actively seek the unexpected as part of my own process.”

 

The ‘Momento Series’ are about loss and renewal. The paintings explore the idea that personal histories and memories become progressively obscured by passing time and new experiences. Initial intuitive mark-making on the surface becomes the starting point for each work providing the inspiration for adding alternating layers of dark and light layers of varying thickness of paint. Within each layer selected elements are left unchanged developing a complex surfaces which reveal and either fully or partially obscure the history of each painting. These glimpses of the paintings evolution are now essential to her practice.

 

“ My paintings have evolved as a physical manifestation of an internal dialogue. When experiencing loss memories are precious links to the past but become obscured and fragmented as time passes. This can be cathartic but can also be a painful experience. My paintings physically illustrate the frustration of trying to piece together partial memories fading and changing with time. The painted layers hide passages of the painting revealing glimpses of the past and the evolution towards the present.”
