We are excited to be exhibiting a collection of works by Francesca Currie in our Contemporary & Modern Gallery from April 12th.
Her work brings a fresh vision and palette to traditional subjects and views. Francesca is a full-time artist based in Cheltenham, studying at The University College of the Arts in Norwich where she achieved a B.A. Honours in Fine Art.
She went on to study at the London Atelier of Representational Art and has exhibited across the country including in London, Broadway and York. She became an associate to the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists in 2017 and was elected (their youngest) full member in 2018.
Her work combines the traditional techniques of the Old Masters with a modern viewpoint to create classical representational oil paintings with a contemporary composition.
We look forward to sharing her work with you as part of our new selection of contemporary artwork.
‘When you buy something from an artist, you’re buying more than an object. You are buying hundreds of hours of experimentation. You are buying years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You’re not buying just one thing, you’re buying a piece of a heart, a piece of a soul . . . a small piece of someone else’s life.’
