Nottingham Contemporary is delighted to present the UK’s first major exhibition at a public gallery by Francis Upritchard. Originally from New Zealand and now living in London, Upritchard’s recent works are human figures presented on elaborately crafted bases that appear archaic, yet also seem to be devotees of contemporary alternative cults. There is a post-festival feeling to their sorry gatherings, emphasised by Upritchard’s use of acid-bright colours and her hand-woven textiles.
Upritchard has made over 20 new works for the Nottingham Contemporary exhibition, seven “soldier” figures; seemingly captured mid attack, the group is perhaps influenced by the many medieval myths of Nottingham.
