Francis Upritchard

February 9, 2010

New Zealand born artist Francis Upritchard came to my attention when I had a chance to look through her new book Every Colour By Itself.  Beautifully designed by Äbake and published by their publishing venture Dent-De-Leon it made me want to find out more about her work. In the book all the sculptures – incredibly colourful fluorescent naked men and ladies – are shown from all possible angles and printed on thick, absorbing paper, which creates a wired and wonderful feeling. I love the use of colour and the awkward postures these bodies have – almost as if we all should actually look like this. Naked, of course.
