Keith Francis was born in Fairhaven, Massachusetts and considers himself an American painter, sculptor, graphic artist, photographer, and proponent of of "abstract expressionism":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abstract_expressionism.
Some of Keith's 2012 paintings depict the powerful forces of water and land coming together in Point Lobos, California, to create a textured canvas dominated by black and grays. The resulting images are often huge areas covered with complex and dynamic patterns that fuse image and form, engulfing the viewer.
In 2013, Keith's work will be featured at the "New Bedford Art Museum":http://newbedfordartmuseum.org/ , and a solo exhibition in at "Colo Colo Gallery":http://www.facebook.com/pages/COLO-COLO-GALLERY/118201468223993, in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
Francis is influenced by "Jackson Pollock":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackson_Pollock and he believes that art is derived from the unconscious. In this sense, Keith is able to evaluate his own work based on its authenticity of personal expression.
Keith's artwork is in the permanent collections of museums, universities, art galleries and private collections worldwide.
