Frances Bildner

I paint from my imagination. Much of my work stems from my subconscious and draws inspiration from both the Abstract Expressionists and German Expressionists.

 

The most important element for me in painting is colour. Everything I want to say is translated through colour and movement. I use colour in quite an emotive way.

 

I have sold to private collectors, offices and restaurants, and have exhibited in Europe and the United States.

Frances Bildner, Artist Statement

The thematic concept of my work is concerned with life in all it's myriad forms.

 

I am influenced by the German Expressionists and the Abstract Expressionists. I place emphasis on the emotive aspect of the work and,like them, my work is both emotional and immediate.

 

When I was thirteen years old Sir Charles Wheeler, the past president of the Royal Academy wanted to buy my flower painting, which had won first prize in a competition in East Sussex.

 

I have been an artist for many years, working in a variety of mediums - paintings, mosaic tables, walls & trays and textiles.

 

I am a colourist, I love colour in all its variety and paint from my imagination. My paintings are organic. An image may appear on the canvas and will become something - a flower, an abstract, a figure. I don't have a prefixed idea.

 

I have been lucky in my life to have lived in very exciting colourful places - Buenos Aires, London, New York. These places have had a great influence on my paintings. My work which I have been told adds life to the environment, has been sold to businesses and homes.

 

Impressions magazine described me as “a passionate and seductive painter, Bildners riotous use of colour affirms this view. The paintings are in definite, almost aggressively joyous, dialogue with the viewer and their presence is hard to ignore.”

 

New York’s Village Voice declared my work to be “varied and vital enough to renew a jaded spirit”.

 

I accept commissions and love to paint very large canvases!

 

I love colour, I love it in its vitality, in its aliveness, in its courage and magnitude, in its fullness and wellness in its darkness and pain.

 

Colour in its highs and lows, its definition and freedom. I love its childlike, friendly, approachable intensity,its spontaneity and honesty.

 

For me a world devoid of colour is unimaginable.

 

I am represented in collections throughout Europe and America.
