We were very excited to see the title of Ian Francis' newest exhibition, 10,000 Years From Now. Obviously, his work resonates with this title perfectly. There seems to be this distant future mixed with familiar figurative elements in each Francis painting, a surreal, mystical experience that has a foundation of contemporary. Francis' latest body of work examines the "fragility of this lifetime in contrast to geological timescales."
