About

Utilising pencil, ink or paint she creates delicate consecutive horizontal lines on paper and canvas to create abstract works of an engaging and tactile nature.

This autumn exposure gallery welcomes Frances Ewing-Press and her recent body of work. A practicing artist for over twenty-five years, her work receives critical acclaim including selection for The John Moores Open and the Eastern Approaches Open. Inspired by artists such as Agnes Martin and David Connearn, Ewing-Press explores nuances of abstraction and movement inherent in the hand drawn line. Utilising pencil, ink or paint she creates delicate consecutive horizontal lines on paper and canvas to create abstract works of an engaging and tactile nature.

In her latest work Ewing-Press has expanded her ideas into working in relief with discarded man made objects in the tradition of Arte Provera. Working with bicycle rubber inner tubes fixed to canvas she allows the suppleness of the rubber to fall into its own natural rhythms within a predetermined linear framework. The black lines made by the inner tubes across the canvas are reminiscent of the hand drawn graphite or ink lines of her earlier works and their distinctive and structured format. These however are neither hard lines nor two-dimensional lines in their refusal to be totally compliant.

Her works, although personal, are not prescriptive. The rubber material may trigger a wide range of thoughts or feelings; the number of cyclists killed on the roads, the fetishistic nature of rubber, or the cycle of life itself and our inner strengths and vulnerabilities; ultimately the work is as emotionally arresting as it is visually captivating.
