Charms to Protect the Tired, the Poor

Richly textured and suffused with mystery, Fran Gardner's eerie, evocative work captivates and unsettles in equal measure.

"Her sensuous work always begins with stitching."

…which draws the viewer almost unaware into a universe submerged by time, memory, and place. A sea of petroglyphs, ancient text, and even computer motherboards—all of these speak to a universal, timeless language [in Gardner’s work.]”
