Community Artists' Collective presents RE:VIEW: An Allegory of Women
“RE:VIEW: An Allegory of Women” features new original works by Houston native New York City based artist and curator Ricardo Osmondo Francis. Inspired by Classical art, multi-ethnic antiquity, and present day advertisement imagery, Francis' vivid pictorial works present a torrent of imagery culled from every possible corner of the visual culture. His lush, elaborately graphic surrealistic paintings and drawings often depict the social constructs of humanity and the complexity of our existence through striking introspective, portraiture, still life, and abstract compositions.
In this show Francis explores the theme of women as a subject of contemplation. This current series further shows the artist’s stylistic vocabulary deepening and developing in an unlikely way. Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until September 29.
