Mark Francis: Arena – Abbot Hall Art Gallery

Mark Francis – Arena

Mark Francis belongs to a generation of primarily non-objective painters. His work draws on a wide range of previously unavailable scientific images now in general circulation due to the invention of the electron microscope and advances in telescopic technology.  This exhibition will showcase some of his most recent work which explores the use of the grid format and the dynamic between the man-made and the natural. Francis studied at St. Martin’s School of Art (1980-1985) and Chelsea School of Art (1985-1986).
