Francis Livingston
STRAND THEATRE

2014

About

36 x 36 inches oil on panel framed About Francis Livingston He studied at the rocky mountain school of art in Denver before moving to San Francisco in 1975 to attend the academy of art. He later taught there for 10 years. Influenced by Sargent and Whistler, Livingston painted primarily in a monochromatic style until he began to study the work of the bay area figurative movement, including Richard Diebenkorn, Wayne Thiebaud and others. With a love for nostalgia, he paints places which may no longer exist or that have lost their luster. His bold and impressionistic paintings take the viewer back in time to the day when amusement parks with wooden roller coasters, movie theaters with neon signs and buildings with ornate embellishments were in their prime. Livingston is known for his thickly applied brush strokes that emphasize shape rather than line, creating an abstract approach to realism. His scenes of yesteryear have exciting movement, color, texture and balance.
