Frances Bloomfield’s work can be described as a form of contemporary Surrealism, which owes much to the ideas explored by Giorgio de Chirico in the early 20th century.

About this exhibition
Bloomfield creates fascinating dreamscapes in three-dimensional collage, which are like small theatre sets that play with space and perspective, to draw the viewer into curious and sometimes confusing worlds.
Often her work suggests parallel realities: a juxtaposition of what is considered ‘real’ and what is imagined or desired, or the conflict between the façade and what may really be occurring out of view.
In this exhibition at Farley’s Gallery Bloomfield brings together work from the last 12 years, where you will see these themes revisited and explored in a variety of styles and approaches.
This exhibition will be dedicated to the memory of her late partner, Pete Fraser, also an artist. Bloomfield’s work owes much to his creative inspiration and generosity.
