Ready to Hang

I painted the cream background of this piece ages ago, as well as the green and brown portions...and there it sat... Until, last year in a stroke of creativity, I added the reddish pink swirl. The piece came alive to me then! I felt the inherent movement of the piece happen almost as I painted the strokes themselves. I loved the movement of the piece as the red almost cleaved through the greens and browns along the base, I added the 'reverberation' rings to increase the feelings of movement within the piece once the act of tilling, reaping, sowing began to take shape. When I came across several old saw blades, the addition of metal was natural. From trips to flea markets to many moments picking up random metal from construction sites, gutters and parking lots, the piece was finally coming together. But it wasn't until after hours and hours of detailed acrylic paint pen work, did the wonderful moments within the piece begin to POP!

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.
