Francesca O'Malley


A native of Brooklyn, NY, Francesca’s first formal art training was at the Brooklyn Museum Art School. She attended Pratt Institute where she received a BFA and MFA in painting. Recent work in acrylic on canvas, is an exploration of space, dimension, light, symbol, and the human figure. These elements are often placed in contradiction to each other. Background images may be appropriated from NASA or from satellite imagery. 3D lenticular work is the basis for a group of sculptural objects making use of obsolete technology from the 1950s, which today is usually seen in the kitschy context of vacation postcards. Although more playful, they are concerned with the perception of space, the environment, and the role we play in shaping it.
