Mary Anne Francis
Mary Anne Francis is an artist and writer. A concern with the idea of editions has run through her practice since she graduated with a BA in Fine Art & Critical Studies from Central St. Martin’s College of Art & Design. She has produced a range of artist’s books (sometimes under pseudonyms) which have been stocked in many London art bookshops and reviewed in periodicals such as Art Monthly, and postcards – which feature in Jeremey Cooper’s The Artist’s Postcard with one now held by the British Museum. She was represented by The Multiple Store with the limited edition High Art Light; the collection is now archived with Tate. She has work in many public and private collections. Handel Street Projects have shown a number of Mary Anne’s multiples: as part of the gallery’s Farmer’s Market shows, and, with Multiple Multiples (2014), in their Multiple Market exhibition. With a PhD in Fine Art from Goldsmiths, Mary Anne currently teaches at the University of Brighton on Fine Art degrees. She publishes her first book with Bloomsbury this autumn: Mixed Forms in Visual Culture: From the Cabinet of Curiosities to Digital Diversity.
