Featuring Ian Francis
The Outsiders London
Friday 5th of September 2014 to Saturday 4th of October 2014
Ian Francis will make a guest appearance at The Outsiders London this September with Endless Summer, a unique showcase of intimate studies encapsulating a collection of multiple narratives and disparate moments in time.
Following his last large-scale exhibition 10,000 Years From Now at Lazarides Rathbone, Endless Summer continues the artist's ongoing investigation into contemporary issues facing the human condition, presenting a new body of identically-sized studies that capture suspended snapshots of modern life. After spending the past few months oversaturated in summer photos and bombarded with random imagery, Francis began his exploration into how these moments collide and the way in which we interact with and relate to them. Fascinated by the circumstances enabling such randomly selected images and ideas to coexist, the artist questions the result of this crosssection in time, whether they align or fall apart and their reference point in history in relation to our past and future.
Endless Summer provides a democratic display of ultra-modern artworks, each meticulously painted on a uniform panel, shifting the viewer's attention between myriad suggestive open-ended narratives.
