Murmurations / Conversations

Frankie from Brighton and Amanda from Worthing come together as old friends from their ‘Drawing Circus Days to celebrate creativity through collaboration and conversation.

Sustained by social networks and intrigued in how this is mirrored in nature’s groups and clusters, they loosely take inspiration from the starlings’ magical and wondrous murmurations.  Both artists regularly venture out to observe the starlings create their fantastical formations along our coastline from Worthing to Brighton.  

Frankie will interpret this through her accessories, jewellery and broachers alongside Amanda’s paintings, prints and watercolours. They will regularly meet to create and document their journey ready to celebrate their work together and share it with the public. 

During their week at Colonnade House, they will continue to create together and look forward to sharing their work and welcoming visitors to the conversation. 

Frankie Cluney is an Artist and Model who’s always loved making intricate crochet pieces inspired by nature and firmly believes the best way to exhibit artwork is to wear it! You can follow her on Instagram @frankie_cluney_crafts and @floorlengthfrankie

Amanda Beck is an Artist and Illustrator who uses both digital and traditional techniques to create her artwork.  She considers life drawing to be the backbone of her practice and will draw on her knowledge of the human figure, her love of sketching in nature and sketchbooks to create a new body of work especially for this exhibition.

They are delighted to be exhibiting their work together during Worthing Artists Open Houses weekend 26 & 27 November and will conclude their creative adventures at New England House (Home of Draw Brighton) when they exhibit together as part of Brighton Open Houses 10 & 11 December.
