About

Geography #4 (Abstract Gestural Pastel Drawing of Africa in Light Wood Frame) Abstract, gestural graphite and pastel drawing on Arches paper 41.5 x 30 inches unframed 49 x 37 inches in light wood frame This contemporary abstract grid drawing was made by Swiss born artist, Anne Francey, in 1995. The abstracted drawing of Africa is composed of beautiful gestural lines made with colorful pastel and bold graphite. Cross hatching layers of pastel in prominently red, mint green, blue, yellow, and orange contrast against thick lines of dark graphite and a slate grey background. This piece is complimented with a light wood frame and pre-installed wire for instant hanging. About the artist and work: Swiss born artist, Anne Francey, returns to the gallery exhibiting selections from both past and current work. Trained as a painter, Francey added ceramic to her studio practice after developing a love and fascination for the ceramic tiles and infinite design that adorn houses and interiors in Tunisia, spending a year at the National Center of Ceramics of Tunis. Arabesques, this endless flow of lines inspired by vegetal forms typical of Islamic art, has translated onto her recent work in the form of simply choreographed lines resembling seed pods, bramble, and flowering buds. In her 1988 Flower series, the artist captures the delicate essence of her natural model through vivid movements of paint and animated marks of red and black charcoal on paper and canvas. So simple in their approach, these seemingly effortless designs owe their appearance to the liberated approach Francey takes with the application of her medium. In more recent work, Francey continues the free-hand aesthetic with her work on paper series entitled, Seismography. Opaque black ink creates the impression of a solid space activated by an almost calligraphic inscription of thin white lines. The dramatic lines seek to record their realistic counterparts but are inevitably abstracted by the unpredictable nature of the artist’s hand.
