Frances Brennan is a metalsmith who makes contemplative sculptural objects. Her work references nature, whether intentional or otherwise. Utilising both the random and the planned, she values both the process and the ideas that emanate from it. The work evolves while in her hands and she is often surprised by the results, sometimes only understanding the origin when the work is complete. While Brennan is comfortable with her chosen material, metal, she also relishes the excitement that the introduction of other materials brings. She envisages these contemplative sculptures in domestic settings, gallery spaces, public art situations and architectural interiors and exteriors.
