Francis Upritchard: A Long Wait

Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, USA

May - September 2012

Contemporary Arts Center (Cincinnati, USA) is currently showing A Long Wait, London-based NZ artist Francis Upritchard's first museum exhibition in the United States.

"Upritchard's small figures made out of techno-color painted clay take on nonsensical poses and often exist in specially tailored environments--such as under glass domes or on cupboards, tables and chairs--in order to emphasize both their diminutive scale and whimsical character.

For the artist's exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Center, she will merge previously created key pieces with new work in an installation specifically tailored for the gallery."
