Mark Francis Monograph

This is a very revealing book by Lund Humphries on the works of Mark Francis, the Irish born 'abstract' painter. I use that term loosely as he does refer to elements from nature, whether the human body or fungus and other natural phenomena. But, like the work of Ian McKeever, he straddles both worlds with a slick and compelling oevre, similar to Gerhard Richter, that both excites and reveals the possibilities of paint. A worth while book for any painters studio
