Francis Upritchard is showing her sculptures at the Lux Institute in Cardiff by the Sea as part of their artist in residence program. Upritchard is a resident of London now but was born and educated in New Zealand. Her work is a off center combination of native and modern re-interpretations of curious subject matter from prehistoric looking animals and humans to vessels and mini hats.
This show runs until March 23 and Upritchard will be in the gallery from Feb 8 to Feb 24 working on a California inspired work made out of balata which is a rubber -like material from a tree in the Amazon. When you visit the show, don't forget to look up to see the creature made from this material perched high on a back ledge.
