About the work
Shingo Francis
Japanese-American, b. 1969
Follow

Like his father, the painter Sam Francis, Shingo Francis is interested in form and color, and he has a keen appreciation for how these elements shape our perceptions. His acrylic painted canvases take unusual forms, including long, stretched paraboloids. He breaks the picture plane with horizons of densely worked masses of color. Of those horizons, Francis has said, “What the boundary represents is the interaction, the point between these two entities. It expands not just into culture but it can include personality and psychology, so it became kind of a greater boundary.” His paintings such as Orange and White (2010–11) and Open Space (2012) emphasize both the distinctiveness of individual colors and the overall totality and harmony of the compositions.
