Graham Fransella is a painter, printmaker and sculptor who continues to explore the figure and the landscape in an exuberant, graphic style. His multi-layered abstractions are the distillation of several decades of draughtsmanship. Strong black strokes trace the outlines of figures, so stripped of detail that they become symbolic and reminiscent of pictograms or graffiti. This exhibition also features Graham’s bronze sculptures, which transform the iconic figures from his two-dimensional work into three-dimensional forms who playfully dance and cartwheel upon their wooden plinths. There is a wonderful flatness to these bronze figures, which hints at their origins on paper. Above all, Graham’s distinctive works use the “presence of human form and the absence of personal identity” to portray the human condition.
