Francis Denis (Francia, Longuenesse) presenta acá una pequeña colección de su reciente trabajo el cual considera expresión y forma como unidad.
Las pinturas abstractas figurativas de ?Francis? evolucionan alrededor del tema único de la emoción. Todo en sus misteriosos trabajos está centrado en la humilde y triste angustia de las figuras que retrata. La manera en que lo hace Francis es completamente espectacular.
Estableciendo un solo tono de fondo, prefigura el carácter de su plástica desde sus audaces plataformas. Oscuro y lóbrego en cuanto a colores, éstos inmediatamente atrapan al espectador en una pictórica depresión. La selección de colores para las figuras a su vez es también maravillosamente trágica; azules profundos y remolinos rojos pastel para crear formas aparentemente, en un comienzo, equivocadamente trazadas.
Dentro de su estilo habita una distorsión muy propia de Picasso; aun vinculada ligeramente a un fuerte sentido de realismo. Su expresiva pincelada usa tonos contrastantes y el blanco delineado de sus formas crea casi una estética de collage.
Quizás lo más cautivador, es la imagen de las manos complementada por la del cráneo contorsionado. Estas manos son levantadas perplejas, en la incertidumbre, y aluden a un terrible accidente. Las desamparadas, devastadoras gesticulaciones faciales en sus incómodos colores resuelven la expresión.
Es exactamente ésta la expresión facial que dibuja una respuesta humana para el espectador, aunque rechazando a su vez la naturaleza de la obra esta desnuda exposición. Extrañamente los ojos del modelo se encuentran con el espectador, prefiriendo en vez de eso evitar su mirada, quizás a través de la culpa o el sentimiento de agravio.
Las pinturas de Francis dejan muchas preguntas sin contestar, pero permiten un atractivo y dinámico juego de interrogantes para el espectador.

« La Ira de Morféo »

Francis Denis is a semi-professional French painter. Presented here are a small collection of his recent works that consider gesture and form as one.
Francis\' abstract figurative paintings evolve around the singe theme of emotion. Everything in these mysterious works is centred around the humble and sad angst that the figures portray. How Francis does this is quite spectacular.
Set on a single tone backdrop, an immediate mood is set by the colour of these bold platforms. Dark and morose in colour, they instantly trap the viewer in a pictorial depression. The colour selection for the figures themselves is also wonderfully tragic; deep blues and pastel reds swirl to create form from seemingly, at first, misguided strokes.
Within the style there is very much a Picasso distortion going on; yet held to a slightly stronger sense of realism. The expressive brushwork uses contrasting tones and the white outline of his subjects creates an almost collage-like aesthetic.
Perhaps most encaptivating though, are the gestures created by the hands and supported by a twisting skull. These hands are raised in shock, uncertainty and allude to a terrible accident. The forlorn, devastating facial expressions in their uncomfortable colours support this.
It is the facial expressions that draw a human response from the viewer and yet Francis\' subjects refuse this bare exposure. Rarely do the sitter\'s eyes meet the viewer, preferring instead to avert their gaze, perhaps through guilt or grievance.
Francis\' paintings leave many questions unanswered but allow for a playful and engaging guessing game for the viewer.
