What happens when the sun goes down? Below our feet, all the little demons and devils get ready for the night's devilry. At least, that is what I had a fun time depicting in this multi-tiered canvas piece. I created this piece centered around the sunset, and at the time, Halloween was less than a month away. The idea kept coming back to me that sunset is the witching hour and what would the little demons be doing during the witching hour? My satirical response was that they would be having a party!
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.
