With over 1,000 pieces of cut-sheet vinyl, museum board and acrylic-painted cardboard, this multi-dimensional piece resembles the innards of a 1980s computer. Creating each smaller layered piece and then adding each layer of detail, and utilizing the lime green vinyl, my mind kept returning to the idea of circuit boards and computer parts. It was the driving force while I worked and was the reason I chose to name this piece, 'Motherboard.' With over 25 hours of detail work, your eye will easily move from one detail to another, discovering something new every time you look at it.
This is an intricately, layered multimedia piece professionally framed in a 24"x48"x2.5" shadow-frame cherry finished wooden frame with double matting.
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.
