This Thursday, British Painter Ian Francis (featured) makes a return to New York City’s Joshua Liner Gallery for a new exhibition. Entitled Season 1 Episode 0, this fresh selection of paintings explores the reality and unreality of contemporary TV – from the made up world of characters and storylines, to the digital manipulation of locations and visual effects, to the myriad of platforms that exist today for production, delivery, and global consumption. As you can see from our exclusive preview below, this latest series is another step up for the already talented Mr. Francis who seems to effortlessly combine aspects of abstraction & figuration through elements of both painting & drawing. Ian will be present at the opening so stop by if you’re in NYC on April 25th (6-8pm).
