NOT  EVEN  NOTHING  CAN  BE  FREE  FROM  GHOSTS

2018  Mark Tanner Sculpture Award Exhibition ,  S t a n d p o i n t, London  and  Cross Lane Projects, Kendal, Cumbria

"A thought drawing, drawing of a thought" is a framed pair of delicate pencil drawings showing continuous chevron shapes, an ancient symbol of water in several cultures, and made up in Richardson’s signature style of tiny plus/minus, positive/negative signs. Although, with its minimal mark-making gestures and pale tone, it is one of the least visually imposing elements of the exhibition, it actually serves as a key to the whole installation, bringing together the subtle and indirect imagery of water with the implicit relationship between the material delineation of space and philosophically measured conceptual thinking that is always to be found throughout Frances Richardson’s reflective and sophisticated sculptural practice.
