Fran Shalom: Studio visit

Lisa Pressman photoblogs a studio visit with painter Fran Shalom

Shalom writes of her work "My works balance the formal with the playful, paring down shapes and ideas into their most basic forms. It is a search for clarity and humor... But, like life itself, there is an undercurrent of conflict beneath the whimsy, as reflected in the tension and interaction between the shapes."
