Openings: Ian Francis – “Fireland” @ Joshua Liner Gallery

Last night, Ian Francis (featured) unveiled his latest body of work Fireland at Joshua Liner Gallery.

Ian’s paintings demonstrated why many around the world draw inspiration from his creations. It was also exciting to see a number of varied mediums he choose to exhibit – ranging from canvas to charcoal to inks on paper. We also noted the further refinement of Ian’s already popular […]
