Biography from
Fran Bull's art has been shown worldwide for over 25 years. Art critic Alice Thorson wrote in 1993, in a review of Bull's solo show at the Morgan Gallery in Kansas City:

"Partial to exploding, amorphous forms, labyrinthine layerings and iridescent colors, Fran BullÕs aesthetic overwhelms."
Kansas City Star, Nov. 5, 1993

Bull's life was inspired and defined by her childhood study of art at the Newark Museum, Newark New Jersey. She went on to study painting at Bennington College with Paul Feeley, and in 1980 she earned an M.A. degree from New York University in Art and Art Education. Upon graduation from Bennington in 1960, Bull embarked upon a professional life in art. Her early work was influenced by artist Malcolm Morley and by the Pop spirit of Photo-Realism. It was shown and sold through the Louis K. Meisel Gallery. Bull's affiliation with Meisel continued until 1986.

Recognizing the limitations of Photo-Realism, Bull was compelled to find a personal voice. On a solitary retreat to rural Ireland, she delved into the writings of Carl Jung and Jungian analyst Marion Woodman. BullÕs affinity for the Jungian literature would come to exert a profound influence on her art.

As a Photo-Realist Bull had addressed an established reality, one well known and shared. Now she was investigating the hidden treasure of the unconscious, the imagery of dreams.

In the mid 1990s Bull expanded her creative focus by exploring other media, and since that time her artistic output has included performance art, sculpture, mixed media, printmaking and set design, as well as painting. She has been especially prolific in the area of printmaking, creating numerous bodies of work over the past four years. Bull works in collaboration with master printer Virgili Barbara in Taller 46, a printmaking studio in Barcelona, Spain where Picasso, Tapies, Miro, Saura and others worked before her.

In 2003 Bull exhibited her painting series The Magdalene Cycle at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts in Burlington, Vermont.

Bull also received an award from the Printmaking Council of New Jersey for her etching Four and Twenty Blackbirds, and was honored with a solo exhibition. Her etching series Barcelona won her the position of featured artist in the New Jersey State Council on the Arts Artist Gallery.

Fran Bull lives and works in Brandon, Vermont. She also maintains a studio in Closter, New Jersey.
