Artist

Frankie Thorp

Frankie is a London-based artist who explores the humour and familiarity found in everyday objects. Her work is a modern twist on traditional still life painting, with kitsch 70s and 80s references such as cocktails and retro desserts. She enjoys the implied narrative created by her still life table-scapes, suggesting the beginning or end of a party or gathering with friends. She likes the idea that her work can "celebrate the euphoria of a long, lazy summer afternoon."

Frankie's Style

Colour is the starting point for every piece, often more important to her than subject matter. Her main influences come from travel, film and dining. Her love of food and a good cocktail is reenacted in paint, yet often with a surreal or “cheeky” element thrown in - such as an out of place peacock or an elusive spectator, seen in a corner. 

 

She says: “I have an abundance of still life photos that I have collected for reference either found or taken by myself. However, I often like to paint from memory as I like to reduce the objects in my paintings and find if I have the image in front of me I start including too much detail and I lose the desired outcome.”

"I always think a second cocktail is a good idea. My work celebrates that moment and everything before and after that decision." - Frankie Thorp

Lazing on a Sunny Afternoon

"A body of work celebrating the euphoria of a long, lazy summer afternoon.. Still lifes that feature cocktails, fruit and the aftermath of dining. I always like my work to have a cheeky and playful twist on the more traditional still life and with this collection in particular I have driven the narrative of being on a Summer holiday that most of us long for." - Frankie Thorp
