The concepts of "grid", network, interconnection network are fundamental elements of Mark Francis's painting. But these concepts are revisited and strongly altered with respect to a traditional idea of regularity and orthogonality. The eye of the observer lingers in associations that seek referentiality within abstract forms. Thus reminiscences of cellular structures or "astronomical" cues are born, but every form is created ex-novo by the artist. The real protagonist becomes the pictorial field. "The paintings in this exhibition are inspired by science and light, but they are manifested as abstract paintings," explains Francis.
