Fran Gordon is an artist and printmaker based in Glasgow. Fran’s work engages with print through collection of printed matter, colour, materiality and the mediated image - ultimately residing as a practice in collage. This practice relies on a construction of haptic, material, fragments, exploring the push and pull between the physical world and the digital, tensions in material and the fragility of the image. Use of the hand to layer, reproduce and mimic explores this attempt to move away from the flatness of image we engage with in a digital world - to revert back and negotiate within a physical world - at times temporal and fragile - highlighting an intersection and a struggle of status.
Fran graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 2014 and the Royal College of Art, graduating with an MA in Print in 2017.
