Francks Deceus
" Mumbo Jumbo #9 " - Green and pink figurative small painting on canvas

2019

$975

About

Francks Deceus’ “Mumbo Jumbo #9” is a 16 x 12 inch acrylic paint, color pencil, and collage painting on canvas. The bright green, yellow and pink image is very playful, and the imagery is intentionally drawn with the stylistic simplicity of comic book scenes. It shows a male figure warped in a fire hose spraying water in a random direction. The title “Mumbo Jumbo, is inspired by Ishmael Reed’s book under the same titled, where he attempted to capsulate the complexities of the African American experience. Francks F. Deceus was born in Cap-Haitien, Haiti. He moved to NYC when he was nine years old. He currently resides and maintains a studio in Brooklyn, NY. He received a B.A. in sociology from the Long Island University, NY, in 1992. He has studied printmaking at the Bob Blackburn Printmaking Workshop. In February 2008 he was the recipient, of the Samella Lewis Award. Stylistically his work incorporates many of the aesthetic forms of artists like Norman Lewis and Howarddena Pindell, as well as reverberating some of the artistic strains of his native Haiti. His modernist style combines figurative, abstract, and layered elements and relies heavily on a simplification of form, deliberately limiting the color palette range. His solo exhibitions include the Pounder-Kone Art Space, Los Angeles; Tilford Art Group, Los Angeles. Group exhibitions include the Brooklyn Museum, NY; Museum of Contemporary African Diaspora Arts (MOCADA), Brooklyn, NY; The National Civil Rights Museum, Memphis, TN; Gallery M, New York, NY; and Hampton University, Hampton, VA. His work is in private and public collections, including Xavier University, New Orleans, LA, and the Schomburg Center, New York Public Library, NY. His work has been featured in publications such as The International Revue of African-American Art and The Village Voice, as well as being included in " 100 New York Painters ", by Cynthia Maris Dantzic.
