ART WORK SPACE is proud to present The Menagerie, a group show that brings together the work of four female British artists: Fran Giffard, Ella Johnston, Izzie Klingels and Susie Wright.
The exhibition of drawings and prints has been curated by Art Work Space Gallery Director Naomi Murtagh, who was fascinated by the way the individual artists uniquely explore different levels of fantasy or realism, whilst having all developed their work from the same source inspiration: nature.


FRAN GIFFARD
uses digital images to create her compositions, which she then draws with graphite pencil. Using only horizontal lines and creating intense contrasts in colour, she gives the work a print-like quality, despite each drawing being a one-off. Focusing on animals and nature, the artist also explores natural patterns and has created collections based around specific species or habitat.
