Frances Segismundo
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bedford-Stuyvesant



ARTIST STATEMENT: Frances Segismundo’s work revolves around symbolising metropolitan landscapes to represent recent and current global issues. She is inspired by the everyday urban life, and extracts essential moments that, she finds, captures the matters we face as a society. For example, in her series ‘Dysutopia’, she applies her experiences as a global citizen, and covers the issues of anti-immigration in major countries, such as United Kingdom and the United States, and explores the abundant empty lots found in these developing and booming environments. The juxtaposition between condensed architecture (housing thousands of families) and the sudden contrast of vacant spaces, Segismundo attempts to illustrate a topic that is acknowledged, yet overlooked. To allow others to fully grasp these situations, she uses the method of abstraction and layering. She breaks down moments to the crucial subject’s form and shapes, and carefully considers the relationship between the space, figurative details and textures. in hopes that in observing and piecing the elements together, one will start to pick up on the discomfort and bleak aspects that was not noticeable at first glance, because of her use of delicate aesthetics and uplifting colour palettes. Thus creating a composition that embodies fragmented realities within an utopian environment - that may seem ideal from afar but reveal its true characteristics up close.
