Reinventing The Retro With Frances Berry

Frances Berry is a multi-faceted creator. Hailing from Memphis Tennessee, the American artist is both a painter and photographer with a particular talent for collages.

In her series Lines We Live By, she has taken old photographs and transformed them into colour. Thanks to various digital tools, she has dragged horizontal lines onto these retro snaps, and recreated in her own style an abstract reality with a graphic twist. These colourful, surreal images draw the spectators towards the characters that occupy this space, putting the human at the centre. A powerful mix of digital and vintage.
