A commission for the entrance area of a financial products' and services company, for which Francisca was asked to work with penguins as the subject matter.  This piece is Francisca’s way of exploring the oceans in which the penguins live; it is her interpretation of the penguins' habitat, the Southern Hemisphere. Between Folds / Oceans features a carefully collected and diverse range of maps and water charts from the last two centuries with a rich variety of textures, graphics and colours – with shades of blues and greens deepening to purples and blues.
