After reading Issac Asimov's "Foundation" series, I began forming an idea of what an alien landscape on one of the Foundation's many planets might look like - one with a blue giant for a sun. I entitled this piece "Alien Sunset" because I had fun imagining a desert planet in which the inhabitants built a city and lived their lives under a blue sun.
Frances Jemini grew up watching her graphic-artist mother create art out of paper, cardboard, fabric, oil paints - you name it - and has thus tended towards artistic interests her whole life. It led her to study architecture at Virginia Tech, which is where she began creating acrylics and mixed-media artwork. Her style has been described as expressionist abstract centering mainly on the use of bold colors and deep textures and reflects her strong architectural background. Currently residing in Athens, Georgia Frances has also been greatly influenced by the local artist scene and enjoys incorporating avant-garde materials into her work. Her multimedia designs and artwork consist of found materials including cardboard, sheet vinyl, plastic, old credit cards, string and junkyard metal.
