Denise Franklin, After the Storm

Denise Franklin, After the Storm

Denise was born in Boston and studied at the London Guildhall University where she gained a BA and MA in fine art.

Denise mainly works in oil and acrylics on canvas and paper and enjoys the instinctive way the work comes through during the processes. The work keeps a sense of depth but with a subtle feel. The method used for both oil and acrylic mediums are similar, approaching the work with an instinctive objective allowing for the image to evolve creating a balanced empathy between the colours and surface plains. The paint is worked in stages allowing layers of colour to come though creating rich textures thus forming an element of ambiguity which has been an important focus of her work.

Recently Denise has turned her attention to painting abstract seascapes and the image of the boat in a pure tranquil form creating an almost fragile and ethereal quality to the work. The canvases have developed an unconscious quality releasing the canvas from restraints and allowing the work to develop naturally.
