Fran Grossman is a Newton resident and psychologist who began to paint in her 50s. Her wish to bring coherence and unity to her life is an important part of her passion to paint. A central theme is finding ways to bring together the darks and the lights in her life. In her experience, both the darks and the lights, the pain and the joy, have always been very intense and that feels to her like both a gift and a source of fragmentation. In her view, some of her paintings seem primarily to reside in the light, to reflect pleasure, beauty, and hope. Others have more of a darker cast, and reflect pain, despair and anger. The paintings she likes best have both joy and shadow. It pleases her that others often do not see the same tones in any given painting. She studied drawing and painting at the Studio School of the Cambridge Center for Adult Education for many years.
