Original Art by Geoff Francis
As an artist, I see my role as being to say something of relevance about life. My work needs to contain more than just a surface appeal to the eye.
Much of my art is concerned with exploring the inevitable flaws in what it is to be human, and the impact this has on ourselves, the planet, and those we share it with.
Separation and Wholeness is another core theme that my paintings embody, informed from my personal quest to live my life according to Buddhist principles, and the several dilemmas this brings.
I hold a strong ethical position, preferring to use found and recycled materials where possible. My work often portrays some aspect of our relation to this planet and all those who live on it.
I have returned to experimenting with strong sculptural effects using the canvas and the paint. As always I make use of mainly reclaimed commercial paint which otherwise, if buried, would be a poison in the earth. This perhaps embodies the message of the painting within the medium.
Of late, as I paint, words come into my head as clues to what the emerging painting is saying for me. When it has been finished, some time later (perhaps even immediately), the meaning comes clear. It's like looking back into a dream which has dredged itself from my subconscious.
Latest Work Here is some of the work I have produced recently
Latest Work - Sculpture, Sculptural Paintings and Soft Sculptures I am excited by the new and unique series of 'soft sculptures' that I have recently created. Large format sculptures that can be displayed in the traditional way, but also framed as a painting. It takes my interest in sculptural painting to a new realisation.
Sculptural paintings are another way in which my strong interest in texture and shape have found a novel form.
Award Winning Paintings Some of my paintings have received recognition in national and international awards and competitions. Browse some of them here.
Abstract Paintings I seek to find the moment of 'inevitable chance' in which the painting reveals itself to me
Figurative Work I have explored a variety of figurative styles over my years as an artist
Expressionist Nudes Figurative work, but still demonstrating my preferred looseness of style
Natural World Birds, dogs, other animals and works inspired by nature
Social Conscience A challenging series highlighting areas in which humans exploit the planet and its inhabitants (whether human or non-human, through acts of war or daily lack of compassion) with no concern for the consequences
