About

Francesca Fuchs Desklamp, 2017 acrylic on canvas over board 16 x 22 1/4 in (40.6 x 56.5 cm) This work is from a series called How to Tell the Truth and Painting. In How to Tell the Truth and Painting, Fuchs paints the objects left on her father's desk after his death. A paperweight, scissors, bookend, telephone, letter opener: these quotidian objects suggest a life of work, but take on new resonance after the loss of their owner. Indeed, each object becomes a meditation on memory and on how we process grief at its daily level. Francesca Fuchs makes paintings about place and self, looking to the emotional and intellectual intimacies of self-reflection through motherhood, friendships, domestic objects and spaces, as well as art historical references. Fuchs’s work is wide-ranging in scale, from small canvases to public murals, and is characterized by a subdued palette, gentle lines, and gestural brushwork. The subtleties of her canvases underscore a rigorous investigation of the significance and traditions of painting: that is, Fuchs asks, why is painting significant in our emotional lives, how do we live with it, and what does it represent in terms of content, history, and sentiment? As Fuchs observes, "I want the paintings to feel really straightforward, like they just are what they are. And so, sometimes, every now and then, when something looks almost too virtuoso, I might scale it back a little bit, because I want a tiny bit of clunkiness in the painting so that they can just be, and be true..." Fuchs lives and works in Houston, TX. She was born in England and grew up in Munster, Germany.
