Patrick Woodroffe


As part of New Expressions 1, Falmouth Art Gallery commissioned surrealist artist Patrick Woodroffe to reinterpret the gallery's historic frames collection.

Patrick was inspired by the gallery's examples of the Watts frame and has enhanced his understanding of the way the frame changes the image. The project, called Frameworks, has also prompted other artists to look afresh at their own frame-making.

A rich education and community activity programme accompanied the project, aiming to increase schoolchildren's awareness of the frames of pictures.
