DESCRIPTION

Abstract figurative painter, printmaker and sculptor Graham Fransella utilises a language of symbols, strong lines and dense colour to construct his ambiguous and suggestive works. Fransella uses the flexible icon of the curve to suggest both the landscape representation of the river and the figurative representation of the head, allowing broad and subjective interpretations from the viewer.
Graham Fransella was born in England and arrived in Australia in 1975. His work has been included in group exhibitions at the National Gallery of Australia, the Queensland Art Gallery and Heide Museum of Modern Art. A survey exhibition of his work was held at the Stonington Stables Museum of Art at Deakin University in 2003. His work is represented by the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria, Parliament House, and Artbank. A monograph of the artist’s work titled ‘Figures and Landscapes’ was published in 2002 by Macmillan.
