Frances Disley has been selected for Exploring PAPER, a self-initiated 6-week residency based within PAPER.

PAPER#14-Frances-Disley

Frances will be creating new work in the space over a 6-week period and every Saturday the studio will be open to the public allowing them to see how her ideas are progressing and learn more about her work. She also wants to create multiple works of art that can be given away to visitors to PAPER.

Frances is currently exploring the notion of presenting artworks in a state of flux, unresolved and tipping into the next stage of transformation. She would like to expose at what point an artwork becomes an actual piece of art and the mechanisms an artist employs to make this process possible. Frances intends to explore the idea of paper’s association with planning and thought.

She will explore the potential of paper throughout her residency, pushing and pulling it from sketches, notes, maquettes, and substrates for prints, whilst also using it to mimic other processes and equipment. Frances enjoys the idiosyncratic notion of the artist’s studio as a machine that ultimately produces components for an artwork with the artist as foreman.

PAPER #14: Frances Disley – Exploring PAPER
