Brandon-based artist Fran Bull isn't shy when it comes to her art. She utilizes both the human and electronic to create dazzling art pieces that loom large. Her eclectic Brandon studio has the setting for visual as well as performing artisty.
Bull’s latest display at Castleton State College depict a series of drawings executed in a single day in August 2011—Aug. 15 to be exact. She creatively uses a computer scanner and various enlarging techniques to create large-format drawings the inspire the mind and capture the eye.
The premise is Bull's creation of large-format drawings is to employ computer tools while preserving a fresh and intuitive sensibility, she said.
Bill's exhibit, titled “8.15.11”, is on display at the Calvin Coolidge Library’s gallery and lounge at Castleton State College through Oct. 7.
“It was an idea I shared with gallery director Bill Ramage when I showed the Flanders Fields installation,” Bull said. "”Bill, ever the lover of experiments in art, replied with the movie classic, ‘Let’s put on a show!’ And so, with some trepidation, here it is.”
