Brandon artist Fran Bull is intrigued by myth and enjoys fusing images from the ancient past with icons of modernity. She draws inspiration from Nature, music, poetry and theater.
Fran Bull,an American artist living and working in Brandon, Vermont, and Barcelona, Spain, describes herself as a person of many interests, who one day during a train ride “As the landscape scrolled by”, made the decision to commit herself to a life in Art. Fran was only in her late twenties when she made that choice; but she has remained true to her commitment, achieving great results over her fifty-year career, as an artist. She is a testament to what can be achieved when you focus and remain concentrated on your goals.
Fran titles her artistic process "Nothingness and Being." She shared, “There is a moment in time, (or out of time), difficult to pinpoint, when an idea or image, or ghost of an image becomes a command. I must begin; it seems to imagine the how, the means of implementing the idea so it may live as a work of art. At times the work comes to me whole, as a picture in my mind.” She describes the journey from thought to thing as circuitous and rigorous.
