New exhibition: Fran Bull "Papers Volants"

Inauguration: Saturday 15th September, 13:00h

Duration: Until 31th october


The exhibition, Papers Volants, represents a long collaboration among Virgili Barbarà, the Paper Mill Museum of Capellades and myself: the master printer, the paper maker and the artist. You will notice that I show a wide range of styles and themes. I am inspired to experiment as I work, and to move through many ideas and thoughts. The spirit of Taller 46, while challenging, is light and free, and there is a sense that all is possible. Over the years Virgili has pushed me to explore and to go beyond what I know, to forge into the unknown. This approach suits my artist’s temperament and aligns with my desire to discover the images and stories that lie hidden within materials and processes.

Fran Bull

Brandon, Vermont

Fran Bull, is award-winning American printmaker, painter and sculptor. She has worked for over 18 years in Barcelona at Taller 46, the studio of esteemed master printer Virgili Barbarà. Bull has developed a large body of etching, examples of which you see here. Additionally, she has made her vision concrete through the beautiful papers of Capellades and via a fruitful and warm collaboration with Victòria Rabal.
Bull has been exhibiting her work worldwide for over 40 years, most recently at Pere Pruna Gallery in Barcelona and at the Venice Biennale. Her art is included in numerous museum and university collections, ranging from the Museum of Modern Art in New York, to the Guilin Museum in China. She makes her art in Brandon, Vermont and Barcelona.

Bull’s early Photorealist paintings brought her international acclaim, but in the mid 1980’s this more identifiable approach burst open. She began to create work that could best be described as visualizations of the unseen.
Today Bull’s art seeks to connect ordinary life to larger mythic and historical motifs, themes and narratives.
