about Francis Upritchard

Known primarily for her figurative sculpture, Francis Upritchard’s work is keenly observant of human nature, and treads the line between realism and fantasy. Her figures, a group of misfits and travelling players, appear to taking part in a pageant or masquerade – their expressions melancholic and distant, seemingly questing for something beyond reach.

Francis Upritchard’s work draws on figurative sculpture, craft traditions and design, blending references from literature to Japanese folklore, Indian miniatures to Romanesque frescoes, and ancient sculptures and burial grounds to science fiction. Her installations showcase a wide variety of materials; her distinctive figurative sculptures are made using polymer plastic, amorphous mythological figures in balata – a Brazilian rubber, bronze dinosaurs, glass vessels, ceramic urns and felt hats adorned with beads, badges and plastic decorations.
