Frances Arnold is a visual artist exploring reductive, geometric and non-gestural drawings on paper and a site-specific context.

The movement of light across the surface of delicately manipulated materials and structural lines often complete the work to create playful changes in tone and an ephemeral elegance of line and illusionary space.
