AboutPAPER will hand-over the gallery space to Frances Disley, asking her to explore and interpret âpaper' and âplace' in its widest context. Disley will use PAPER as a studio, creating new work in the space over a 6-week period. Every Saturday during the residency period, from 11am to 5pm, she will open the studio to the public and allow them to see how her ideas are progressing and learn more about her work.
Throughout the residency Frances will explore the notion of presenting artworks in a state of flux, unresolved and tipping into the next stage of transformation. She enjoys the idiosyncratic notion of the artist's studio as a machine that ultimately produces components for an artwork with the artist as foreman. She also wants to create multiple works of art that can be given away to visitors to PAPER.
Frances completed her printmaking masters at the Royal College of Art in 2004. She is based at the Royal Standard, lecturers at Liverpool Hope University and is the Print Studio Manager at the Bluecoat.
In January 2015 Frances will present a new body of work developed from her residency in PAPER. This exhibition will be the culmination of her Exploration into PAPER.
