Order, logic and purpose exist within the apparent chaos of “No Brush, 1987” by Sam Francis. Originally a student of botany, psychology and medicine, Francis (1923 – 1994) merged creativity with science in his art. His seemingly random, unstructured works were designed to show space, light, symmetry and patterns. The colors and forms of this piece evolved entirely from drips and splashes of paint in a style called Tachisme. A Zen Buddhist, Francis filled his art with yin and yang opposites, starting all of his pieces as black and white proofs, which intensified the final color prints.
Like bubbles left by a school of fish, Sam Francis’ nebulous forms fluidly expand, vibrate, separate and reunite. A Californian who studied botany, psychology and medicine, Francis (1923 – 1994) began painting while recovering from a lengthy illness. His trademark cell-like, irregular forms were painted in bright oils and clear watercolors. Francis was strongly influenced by the French free-form Tachisme style and the Japanese technique of utilizing broad expanses of white space. Francis’ masterful, contemporary work is displayed at numerous museums, including New York’s Guggenheim and Museum of Modern Art.

  • This serigraph is an artisan print with a stunning paint-like vibrancy and viscosity. Also known as screen printing or silk screening, serigraphy is a printing process by which inks are forced through a mesh screen and applied to the surface of the print.
