Cornerhouse Projects: A Flourish. Ornithological Drawings by Fran Giffard

London-based artist Fran Giffard has long been captivated by the beauty of natural illustrations, and has amassed an incredible body of ornithology-inspired artwork over the last five years. Working directly onto her personal Moleskine diaries using watercolour and gouache paints and graphite pencil, she captures the wonder of exotic and commonplace birds. The result is a vivid collection of work with an intriguing personal slant, and here she presents a selection inspired by her time spent in Hong Kong.

Giffard was recently shortlisted for The Threadneedle Art Prize, BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year and David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year.

Join us in the bar for the informal launch of Fran Giffard’s exhibition from 18:00 – 19:00 on Thursday 27 November
