For Fran Panza, life's quiet moments are the ones that offer the most aesthetic possibility. With a saturated palette and an eye for detail, Panza bring sunny lightness to grocery bags, rugby scrums, potted plants, and more. The modern still life - a pile of newspapers perhaps, or a high-tech home office - carries as much information as a tropical landscape or an allegorical tableau of factory workers. Panza is able to tell intimate stories with any subject matter.
Panza lives and works in Pennsylvania and is an active member of the Pittsburgh art community.
