I always enjoy seeing new work from Francisca Prieto, I admire her meticulous and ingenious craft. She shares a recent project with us:
Material: “Encyclopædia Britannica: or, a dictionary of arts, sciences, and miscellaneous literature”. Third edition, ‘Volume I – Part I’, Edited by Colin Macfarquhar; printed for A. Bell and C. Macfarquhar, 1797
Absorbed by the contents of an Eighteenth Century Encyclopaedia Britannica, Francisca has created an artwork that displays and mixes captivating topics such as algebra, alphabet, anatomy, &c. Numerous copper plates are scattered through the piece along with an inscription dating 3rd December 1811.
