Frances Earnshaw

Themes of hiding and disclosure, layering and showing recur in Frances Earnshaw’s work. Varied techniques and media are used in an exploration of these themes; printing, cyanotype, small sculptural objects and found objects, Modroc and her daughter’s small shoes. Clothing, hand-spun fibre and rusting metal. All sorts of materials are used to convey the fragile and the transitory. Often things are dismantled, and components are used for a new piece: the ideas are more important than the object.

Frances Earnshaw graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1985 with a Master of Arts degree. She had a solo show at Gallery 286, Earls Court, London in November 2012. She has shown work at The Freud Museum, London, The V&A Museum of Childhood, London and at the Museum of Folk and Fairytale, Bad Oeynhausen, Germany.

She teaches children and adults, and loves to support creativity in others.
