Lazarides Rathbone is pleased to announce a major exhibition of multifaceted paintings by British artist Ian Francis.
The Chosen Form of Your Destroyer is focused on a new series of mixed media works depicting the coexistence of beauty and destruction in modern society. The Bristol-based artist celebrates his third full-scale solo exhibition at Rathbone Place this year, once again transporting his viewers into other-worldly realms, littered with subconscious realities and blurred boundaries synonymous with his work to date.
The artist’s cross-disciplinary approach weaves intricate layers of both painting and drawing to create distinctly ultra-modern works, providing a powerful dialogue between contemporary techniques and dystopian cinematic content. Francis utilises a high-contrast mixture of oil, ink, acrylic, graphite and charcoal to construct works that are both dramatically appealing and visually striking, whilst alluding to underlying notes of melancholy, alienation and social critique. The new series of paintings continue to examine reoccurring themes of constructed worlds, virtual relationships and shifting dimensions that underpin Francis’ wider practice.
