Frances Pinnock (b. 1990, Bristol UK) is an artist working across sculpture and drawing. From a background in puppetry she studied for a BA in Modelmaking at the Arts University Bournemouth (2014) before working in bespoke leatherwork and establishing her studio practice in 2018.
She works primarily in skin based materials and employs hand stitching as a method of fabrication. Sculptures play with symmetry and additional materials such as horsehair, wool, wax and collected brass objects.
Frances is a recipient of the Leverhulme Arts Scholarship and is a former recipient of grants from Arts Council England and the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust.
Recent exhibitions include Cut and Fold at Make Hauser and Wirth, Somerset (2023), artist-led Material Beings at Cromwell Place, London (2023) and FOG Design + Art, San Francisco (2022) with Sarah Myerscough Gallery.
She lives and works in London.
