In 2011, Fran began making artwork using Powerpoint, and in so doing, found a way to incorporate riveting social critique into her practice.
Fran utilizes humor and a surreal narrative structure to make uncomfortable topics such as: romantic relationships, artistic identity, employment and hot dogs seem less offensive.
Many of the videos embrace an anti-aesthetic, made with outdated software, clip art & free sound bytes to give them a nostalgic, turn-of-the millennium feel. The resulting videos & stills are provocatively ambiguous documents of an, shall we say, explorative process.
For the foreseeable future, Fran will forgo gesso & canvas, in favor of mouse & screen.
Fran is an artist and an independent curator living in Brooklyn, NY. Click "Learn More" for details on her curatorial projects.
