Fran Gallun during her exhibition at Cerulean Arts

In the last several years my work has returned to a focus on still life. After many different paths and iterations of materials and subject matter, this came as a surprise. Where decades ago I was working from the actual objects, now the compositions are imaginary, and the objects are stenciled or freehand cut-outs, archetypal representatives of “vessel”.
I am still intrigued by the simplicity of table top, horizontal, and the objects on it, vertical. The basic geometry of this is still pleasing. Compositions have become simplified, with flat space and floating objects. I continue to be in love with color and color relationships, and the freedom and immediacy that collage affords.
I am using old canvasses to produce this new work, which gives me added pleasure. Painting over them, or using some of the former elements fits with my interest the strata of time, personal history, and the layers within each of us.
