Fiona Chaney

Fiona initially trained as a dancer at The London School of Contemporary Dance and The Juilliard School for Performing Arts NYC (scholarship student). She subsequently performed and taught nationally and internationally. In 2007 Fiona returned to study Fine Art at The University of Hertfordshire receiving a BA(Hons). Her knowledge of dance continues to inform her work.

In 2017 Fiona exhibited at The Royal Society of Painters and Printmakers One-Off Masters- Curated by Morgan Doyle. Her work has also for the second successive year 2018 been selected for Exhibition at The Royal Society of Painters and Printmakers Masters Screen and Stone Exhibition Curated by Chriss Orr RA  RE -showing at the Bankside Gallery. In Nov 2018 she is also Exhibiting with The East London Printmakers at The Pavillon Gallery Mile End.

Since 2013 her work has been hung in permanent exhibition at Hatfield House (Stableyard). She also has exhibited in a group shows at The Crypt Gallery London, Barbican Library London, Watford Museum and had her first Solo Show at Burgh House – Hampstead Museum. Her work has been aquired by Private Collections including The Bisonte Gallery Florence and Candid Arts.

Exploring through the mediums of Painting, Printmaking, Photography and Video, Fiona draws on as many permutations as possible around a central motif alluding to the state of process and transformation. Her interest is in the articulation of visual space, visual perception and time.

‘Earth’ – an intaglio print from a steel plate demonstrates her interest in marks that give witness to time, the elements Water/ Wind /Earth and the emotional consciousness of the reality of sheer invisible mass moving and forming its own continuum. Interventions/Involvements with earthy materials and man made is indicative of Fiona’s searching for forms waiting to unite the visible and invisible.
