Frances Featherstone | With Ever More Information Comes Ever Less Meaning

This original oil painting by local artist Frances Featherstone is part of KATA Jewellery’s first exhibition of the year ‘People Observed, A Unique Perspective’.

Guided by Frances’s appreciation for storytelling, narratives serve at the heart of her work, with which she seeks to fill her paintings with ideas and conceptual depth. As Gaston Bachelard says, ‘Inhabited space transcends geometric space’. A girl sits between spaces
framed between doorways. The first space in the foreground is a library, which seems like it is in darkness although we can see in the distance that it is day. We expect the girl to have taken a book from the shelves, yet she is on her phone. Our eyes are drawn through the
doorways to the outside space and there is a connection made between the green framed phone and the doorway framing the green outside space. The painting leaves the viewer to question the choice of time spent and information.

Available to view and collect at KATA Jewellery’s Royal Tunbridge Wells boutique.
