Description:
Mark Francis (b.1962) Repeater (2006) Oil on canvas, 152.5 x 122cm (60 x 48'') Signed, inscribed with title and dated 2006. (AR 214:06) Provenance: With the Kerlin Gallery, Dublin. Mark Francis was born in 1962 in Newtownard, Northern Ireland. He studied Fine Art Painting at St Martins and Chelsea Schools of Art in London, where he currently resides. This present example reflects his practice over the past thirty years of making paintings with singular optical intensity powerful, apparently abstract combinations of concentrated patterning and stark colour contrasts. There is an almost minimalist aesthetic to this work, the meaning contained within its linear quantifiable elements. Francis has divided the canvas up into forty-six vertical lines and twelve oblong-shaped masses, set against a bright electric red hue. And yet the lines bleed and blur into one another disturbing the purity of the red background. The inky texture of the black lines spread out and multiply across the canvas which appears from a distance as if they are casting shadows, although from a light source entirely unknown. What are these black masses? They appear almost like rips, tears in the canvas, revealing a deep darkness rather than a brilliant red underneath. Francis work draws significantly on discoveries about the form and substance of reality that result from technologically enhanced vision. As an artist working in an increasingly digital age, he is deeply interested in the impact of scientific and technological advances on how we perceive the world around us, allowing us to see beyond our actual optometric prowess. There is sense of hyper-realism to Francis
