France-Lise McGurn


Opening: Fri 18.9.2020, 18:30

France-Lise McGurn (b. 1983, GB) is a painter who works both on canvas, as well as directly on the walls, floors and ceilings of her exhibitions, sometimes combining the two. She draws on an archive of imagery and moving image to create figurative paintings exploring themes such as sexuality, dreams, the intimacy of city life, motherhood and nostalgic popular culture. Working intuitively, she uses swift brushstrokes and repeated marks to create loose associations about place and history.
