FRANCES B. ASHFORTH

‘LAY OF THE LAND’
An exhibition by FRANCES B. ASHFORTH at Hemmings Gallery on 340 Walnut Avenue, Ketchum
Come meet the artist and celebrate the OPENING NIGHT on FRIDAY 9/1 from 5:00-7:30pm!

“Land, water, mountains and deserts are what inspire Frances B. Ashforth. Her passion for fly fishing and time spent in remote places has allowed her to experience sparsely populated and wild lands across the United States. In her latest show ‘Lay of the Land’ at Hemmings Gallery, Ashforth’s paintings, drawings and waterbase monotypes reflect the geography and geology of intersecting habitats that she has visited and studied.

She often orients her compositions along a strong horizon line, exploring its relationships within land, water and sky. Ashforth states, “I am acutely aware of the tension and balance within that line. Weather patterns and time of day temper this balance and translate to composition.” She manipulates light, perspective and contrasts within the elements of the studied habitats.

Her work can appear deceptively simple and spare, yet by focusing on the details and editing the composition, Ashforth’s work evokes memory and knowledge that can only evolve from the focused study of a particular landscape.”
