Susan Francis is a Belfast born artist now based in the South West of England. Her work moves between object, installation and film, with an increasing focus on film as a means to tease out momentary narratives, uncomfortable histories and fragile exchanges. Past work has included solo shows both within the UK and abroad and residencies in a number of countries, including The Bemis Centre for Contemporary Art in the United States. Her work is held in public and private collections internationally including the Arts Council collection for Northern Ireland.
‘I recognise the fragile and precarious place from which Susan draws inspiration. It’s a place of transience, persistence, aggression and silence, encompassing the full range from positive to negative in human experience. It’s a place of innocence which has been compromised.’
Jane Boyer, curator
