Francisca Prieto

Francisca deconstructs and reworks carefully selected damaged rare illustrated books and periodicals folding the pages into modular structures to expose the images. The continuing series Between Folds combines this technique, with her continued fascination in typography, so that the symbol apparent in each work, relates to the subject matter of the source material. Francisca creates a narrative both in the structures used and the conceptual connections through the selections of images and text. Francisca is a Chilean artist who lives and works in London. She trained at Central St Martins and her work is in collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Tate Gallery and the British Library. Francisca has recently exhibited with jaggedart at PINTA, The Modern and Contemporary Latin American Art Show at Earls Court.
