This exhibition focuses on the work of Frances Richards, wife of the painter Ceri
Richards, whom she met at the Royal College of Art, London.
Frances Richards work has a distinctive, visionary character that sets it apart from
the art of her time in both its abstract and figurative manifestations. The touching and
utterly non-academic sophistication of her art, and its consciously modernist
affiliations recalls deeply personal recurring themes.
The exhibition will concentrate on the embroidery-collages and unseen drawings and
monotypes, executed in the war years and previously unseen until now, reflecting
the perspective of a hugely gifted female artist and the dark mood of that fateful time.
The exhibition also presents some of the beautiful and radiantly graceful figurative
and flower paintings of her later years.
Curated by Mel and Rhiannon Gooding.
