Bo Cosfranz was born in Yugoslavia in 1987. She moved to London in 1993, where she currently lives and works as a fine artist. Her focus is on painting, with a style developed through a background in textile, printmaking and sculpture.
Bo’s work is based on the concept of extending tangent lines from corners in order to create a contrast between the organic and geometric aspects in each piece. Her practice explores how people experience the world, in particular our relationship with rules.
She is motivated by the experience of how individuality can grow within a rigid framework of laws and expectations, and how, in turn, this regulatory framework can be shaped by creativity. She applies these ideas to her process, by combining an intuitive approach with a strict set of rules for the creation of each painting.
