Francesca Blomfield b. 1990



Francesca Blomfield is a contemporary visual artist based in London. A former student at Chelsea College of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art, she mainly works with painting often incorporating text as overlay. Blomfield intends to transcend the limitations of painting and so her works typically have narrative dimensions to them, and even accompanying publications. Blomfield creates a fluid, yet sensible world in her paintings, the luminous, dreamy scenes in her works communicate her reconstitution of every-day visual life. Blomfield received the Jerwood Painting Fellowship in 2015, which allowed her to have touring shows in the UK between 2016-17. She had two solo shows in London with Barbican Arts Trust and the Horse Hospital, as well as group shows domestically and internationally in London, Canada and Mexico.
