Frances Cooper Fine Art
Fran is a Manitoba interdisciplinary artist who has been dreaming, creating and contributing to this Earth for over three decades. Her upbringing, formal education along with life experiences has shaped her work. She is interested in exploring the reciprocity elements of this Earth along with human interaction in her artwork. There are various layers of meaning for her; past, present and potential future; that link it all together to visually share her story and the human experience.
Her work has been shown in group exhibitions at MAWA, NorVA, Sam Waller Museum and various Northern Juried Shows. She is a true Canadian with a rich and varied cultural and genetic background from the Parkland area who now resides in The Pas, Manitoba.
As an artist I am interested in the human journey of life and the tenuous links we have with our environment and consciousness. As part of my own growth, I ask questions and address them visually with choice of materials, colours and subject matter. My ideas and ideals are inspired and influenced by the beauty of nature and my surroundings. Symbolism from a variety of cultures that I identify with also plays into my work.
