Frances Cannon – Niceties

18 MAY ~ 4 JUNE
Opening Thursday 18 May, 6pm

ni·ce·ty noun plural noun: niceties a fine detail or distinction, especially one regarded as intricate and fussy. accuracy or precision. a minor aspect of polite social behaviour; a detail of etiquette. This exhibition centres around themes of the body, sexuality, the mind and anxiety, and the pressures placed on contemporary women to act or look a certain way that is socially acceptable. Cannon’s work depicts the human condition and aims to draw an emotional response from the viewer by depicting personal and intimate images. Through the lens of personal experience, the works explore the pressures placed on contemporary women to live up to an unrealistic and outdated standard. Using a variety of aqueous media to create drawings, incorporating figuration, abstraction and text. Cannon uses playful and intuitive imagery, often with a sense of chaos, and has approached each drawing with honesty and vulnerability. read more
