The Scape of Belonging is a survey of paintings that continues the artist’s dominant themes of exile and belonging inspired by the landscape. Coming from a displaced European migrant heritage, Francas’ father was a Lithuanina WW2 refugee and Spanish mother, the concept of belonging when confronted by a strange new landscape is a concern negotiated in these works via the painting process. Michael’s creative artistic approach in these paintings is highly improvisational and allows for ambiguity and accidental outcomes.
