Details:Ricardo Osmondo Francis’ exhibition “2020” opens Thursday, January 28, with a 5 to 8 p.m. reception at the Community Artists’ Collective,
4101 San Jacinto, Suite 116.
The solo show of new original paintings and drawings by the Houston native, New York City based artist and curator is an allegorical reflection of mankind’s response and reality to the unprecedented COVID-19/Coronavirus worldwide pandemic and the Black
Lives Matter movement of 2020.
This series is deeply inspired by the Roman writer Ovid, and his collection of myths called “The Metamorphoses.” In this exhibition, Francis reimagines our current year through a series of dreamy yet provocative images that in essence is a spiritually aspirational reflection of our collective reality. Francis’ often illustrative fairy tale like imagery takes on a bolder socially conscious tone in this new body of work-- all while representing the possibility of human involvement, progression and continuation despite
the many obstacles and uncertainty that this virus has evoked worldwide.
Inspired by Classical art, multi-ethnic antiquity, and present-day advertisement imagery Francis; vivid pictorial works present a torrent of imagery culled from every possible
corner of the visual culture. His lush, elaborately graphic surrealistic paintings and drawings often depict the social constructs of humanity and the complexity of our existence through striking introspective, portraiture, still life and abstract compositions.
This current series further explores the artist’s fascination with the possibility of narrative in portraiture.
Francis is a native of Houston, Texas, and a graduate of Houston’s (now Kinder) High School of Performing and Visual Arts. He is currently the Gallery Director of LeonidesArts NY, an artist run multimedia visual arts organization dedicated to presenting contemporary art exhibitions and public art projects that reflect a variety of distinct themes, disciplines and cultural experiences outside of the conventional art gallery tenet.
The exhibition, which runs through March 27, is curated by The Collective’s Miles
Payne.
