About

Francesca Fuchs Koala Bear, 2018 acrylic on canvas over board 30 x 41 1/2 in (76.2 x 105.4 cm) This work is part of a series currently on view at the Art League Houston in an exhibition entitled "Something". The exhibition features a series of recent paintings of child-made objects from the artist’s family that have become treasured keepsakes. The paintings continue Fuchs's fascination with concepts of worth and value as they relate to themes of memory and home. Drawing from these personal references, the works in the exhibition portray moments of emotional and intellectual intimacy and self-reflection. 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intellectual intimacies of self-reflection through motherhood, friendships, domestic objects and spaces, as well as art historical references.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.
