CHICAGO — Woman Made Gallery is proud to present “In Flanders Fields,” a solo exhibition by award-winning sculptor, painter, and printmaker Fran Bull.
“In Flanders Fields,” a famous poem from World War I, written in the midst of “seventeen days of Hades” by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, forms the central image from which the artist draws her inspiration.
“My work ‘In Flanders Fields,’ an installation in nine parts, is one artist’s attempt to add her ‘silent scream’ to the chorus of those for
whom war is anathema. It is a meditation on the fact that we—as whole countries, as societies, as small bands linked by shared hatreds and as human beings who, with our pitifully short lives, have been given the privilege of inhabiting a magnificent planet — continue to engage in warfare, mired in the delusion that we are thereby solving our human dilemmas.”
Award-winning sculptor, painter, and printmaker Fran Bull has been exhibiting her work worldwide for over 30 years. Her art is included in numerous museum and university collections, ranging from the Museum of Modern Art in New York to the Guilin Museum in China. She makes her art in Brandon, Vermont, and Barcelona, Spain.
