This is a great opportunity to see the work of painter Francisco Jimenez during The Other Art Fair. Francisco paints dynamic portraits and makes sensual life studies which present the human form in an open and entrancing way. The works seem to hover between realism and expressionism in the way that Francisco has been able to capture a human quality in each picture while remaining playful with the application of paint. These works have been built up from layers of energetically applied paint and careful observation. As we encounter each painting we are invited to consider the relationship between the illusion of recognizable form and the play of paint on the canvas surface. I think that this push and pull between what we find familiar and what is unknown is the great skill of the artist to manipulate our senses.
Don’t miss Francisco on stand 001 at The Other Art Fair this weekend.
