Tom Francis

Landscape, the intertwining of flora and fauna, provide the framework for my paintings.. The canvases are vividly colored, intensely patterned and lavishly painted. My paintings are extremely physical, with layer upon layer of heavily bodied paint. It is this celebration of paint that fuels my imagery.

My Palette is one of color as light. The large format allows for the inclusion of the viewer as a presence within the landscape. At first glance, the repetitive forms may be obscured by the complexity of the pattern, but upon close inspection images become clear and their meanings revealed.

Tom Francis’ paintings have been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the United States and abroad, including the Walker Art Center and in Minneapolis; High Museum of Art in Atlanta; Montgomery Museum of Fine Art in Alabama; the George Museum of Art in Athens; the Columbia Museum of Art in South Carolina; the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum in Biloxi, Mississippi; the Capelle de la Sorbonne in Paris; Refectoire des Jacobins in Toulouse, France and Palazzo Venezia in Rome. In addition, his work is in numerous private, public and corporate collections, including those of the Chase Manhattan Bank, Champion Corporation, Lorimar Productions, Disney Corporation, Coca-Cola USA; The State of Georgia, and the State of Wisconsin.
