Attended ELTHAM 2006 - 2011
When Francesca asks someone to sit for her, they start off their pose very aware of themselves physically, whether they are self-conscious or confident, it's clear to see that their focus is on themselves and aware of the fact that they are being studied. After a while of sitting, their body relaxes and their eyes, which were previously focused and determined to make an impression, are now vacant and disengaged. They are lost in their thoughts and suddenly unaware of themselves. That is the expression Francesca wishes to capture in her drawings.
