Moths on Aqua

Frances Brown, 2012

“Moths” celebrates the beauty of the form of the moth, often regarded as the ugly sister of the more beautiful butterfly. These fun contemporary artworks draw on the styles of colourful Pop Art screen prints of the 1960’s and mid century  bold geometric textile prints.

About Frances Brown

Artist Statement
I originally studied for a degree in Biological Sciences, and an interest in the natural world and the environment generally informs my work.
Now a Visual Artist, my fields of expertise include design, photography, printmaking and digital imaging. My work is often a combination of these artforms, such as photographs being digitally modified and then used as templates for handmade prints.
A major theme of my work over the past 2 years has been the changing urban and suburban landscape particularly the redevelopment of Sydney and the Australian coastline. I also have an interest in mid century design, particularly the furniture and textiles of the 1950’s which is a recurring theme in my printmaking.
