Chris Francis

Quasi – Urban; Industrial; Technological; Environment!


This not an exhibition of quaint or romantic views of the built environment.

Inspired by the artist’s upbringing in the suburbs of a major industrial city, the show represents the colours and tactile textures of many forms of structure to be found in urban development.

Hopefully the assemblages (three-dimensional collages) invoke a nostalgia and familiarity for townscapes of the past even though some are based on present-day sites.

The assemblages use recycled found objects and represent re-emerging workshops or acknowledge the potential of inner cities

Birmingham-born Chris Francis moved South East London in 1976 and sees it as his spiritual home. Therefore he relates to the  neglect that has befallen maritime commerce and industrial manufacturing
