来自艺术家Ian Francis 的一组绘画艺术欣赏。
Working in mixed media on canvas, Ian Francis combines abstraction, figuration, and elements of both painting and drawing to create distinctly contemporary works. He draws his inspiration from cinema and imagery examining the most contemporary issues facing the human condition. Amid high-color washes and jagged brushwork, Francis depicts semi-clad figures who loll and mix in casual groupings—some scenes are intimate, others hedonistic. Abstraction and figuration mutually support the artist’s suggestion of a worldview where violence and style intersect. These figures are recognizable, the young and beautiful denizens of a particular media fantasy fueled by sex, death, and celebrity.
