About Artist

Francis Reynolds

Francis Reynolds is a British Artist who lives and works in Cambridgeshire, England. He returned to education as a mature student in 2007 to study Fine Art. Reynolds graduated with a Fine Art BA at Loughborough University in 2012. Since graduating, Francis started a family yet still achieves regular exhibitions nationally together with instructing Art students at a local academy. His paintings are held in Private collections throughout the UK and internationally. Reynolds’ practice can be seen to be quite destructive in as far as process. However, it can be said that the passive/ aggressive nature of the paintings lends themselves to the very nature of the human condition. Reynolds’ outcomes strive to question and reinvigorate the subject; its historical and contemporary context. Together with consolidating ideas of deconstruction; an act of taking apart and rebuilding. This may also highlight the deconstruction of conventions and what is expected from representational painting. The body of work can be seen to emphasise process by exaggerating the application and meticulous methodology through thin layers of paint and blocks of colour. This functions as a way of viewing what was there from past layers, and where decisions in the reconstruction of form were made

Inviting the viewer into a less familiar environment, the simple compositions allow the paint to speak. The work explores a diverse approach to oil painting: borrowing traditions and exploring processes in order to investigate different ways of controlling and engaging with the viewer. The tension between the silent, geometric structures and the rhythm of nature create a disquieting unease that can allude to the Uncanny. This body of work is a direct development from the Borderline Project, exploring the relationships between architecture, design and the tradition of oil painting

The road, the path always has a persperktive, no matter which way. Even if it is an old railway, and the path starts at the old abandoned railway station ... So is human life.
