Frances Drayson


My practice spans sculpture and installation, video, sound, drawing, writing, performance and photography. Through my work I explore possibilities of expression through, or despite, mediation. 

Floor-based sculptures refer to the sequence, restraint and repetition found in churches, industrial farming, minimalism and fascist architecture. Video, sound, drawing and photographic works express voices or characters attempting to undermine their representation. 

I graduated from Royal Academy Schools in (PGDip 2019), Slade School of Art (BA Hons 2010) and Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (Foundation 2004).

I live and work in London, and am currently a lecturer on the BA Fine Art course at Kingston School of Art.
