THE GALLERY CURATES WORKS BY EMERGING INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS, IN A SETTING INFORMED BY KOREAN AESTHETICS.
Francis Gallery is founded on the principle that a fluid and open interaction with beauty can facilitate our search for calm and inner space. In Francis’s collection, rounded, organic forms are charged with a sense of peace; the essential beauty of nature and the human body are captured in jesmonite, resin, and baked clay; lines are drawn in timeless hues mixed from water and earth, crushed botanicals, and pulverised stone; a world in flux is captured in moments of light and darkness.
Traditional Korean ceramics are remarkable in their ability to address our desire for pure abstract forms, centuries since they were made. For founder Rosa Park, an appreciation for this aspect of her native culture is something intuitive, familiar, and natural to share.
