News : Artist Spotlight: Kadi Franson
What are you working on these days?
What has helped sustain you, and your creative practice, during this challenging time?
Family, friends, and other artists. Reading. Quitting all social media. Being outside as much as possible, and maintaining a nature journal.
In what way has your time and connection to North Street continued to influence your work?
The aesthetics, materiality, and conceptual intent of the series that I created during my North Street residency has continued to manifest in various ways in the work that I make today – the super sculpey clay experiments from back then have evolved into porcelain – I now own my own kiln. The conceptual themes that I was exploring at the time, looking at examples of fantastic resilience and interdependence in nature, have cropped up again and again in different ways.
What message(s) do you have for the North Street community?
Protect your light – Keep faith in your practice.
