Selections from M - Series 2
January 23 - March 1, 2014
Michele Francis was born in 1967 in Boston, Massachusetts. After studying photography at Parson’s School of Design, Francis modeled and resided throughout Europe, Israel, Australia and Chile, while continuing to pursue different mediums. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States and was selected to be part of the Directors Choice Exhibition at the Provincetown Museum, Provincetown, MA. She currently lives in New York City and works out of her studio in the Chelsea Arts Building.
A departure from her previous opaque and iridescent large-scale paintings, the selection features some of Francis’ most recent sculptural work. Using a combination of liquid foam and water-color pigmented resin, Francis has developed a unique, new hybrid of painting and sculpture, described by Francis as ”an articulation of ethereal light, translucent color, and the role of shadow play across surfaces in any given day and place.” Selections from M - Series 2 will be on view at Rick Wester Fine Art from January 23 until March 1 in the print room alongside the group show NOT LONG HIDDEN featuring Kate Joyce, Jakub Karwowski, Joe Maloney, Cheryle St. Onge, and Joni Sternbach.
