Artist Talk – Michael Francas
13 October 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
Join us for a chat with artist Michael Francas on the last day of his exhibition ‘The Scape of Belonging’ in the ArtGeo Gallery. The Scape of Belonging is a survey of paintings that continues the artist’s dominant themes of exile and belonging inspired by the landscape. Coming from a displaced European migrant heritage, Francas’ father was a Lithuanina WW2 refugee and Spanish mother, the concept of belonging when confronted by a strange new landscape is a concern negotiated in these works via the painting process. Michael’s creative artistic approach in these paintings is highly improvisational and allows for ambiguity and accidental outcomes.
