Event description

Description

“My works are not loud, noisy and shouting. On the contrary, they listen” - John Franzen

Luminaire arts are delighted and proud to announce his first ever solo show in London, featuring a collection including works from ‘Each Line One Breath’ and ‘Creation is Destruction’

Where would you find art where mediums include a 12mm pump gun on brass, an axe on titanium steal, and artists blood on paper? Major themes of Franzen’s work are darkness, singularity, nothingness and destruction. From a family of Woodcutters, Franzen’s experiences working outside gave him a new perspective on working with mediums beyond the two dimensions, and made him realise his love for art that required intense work of the hands.

He works in two different studios; one is bright and small, where he does his drawings and most of his delicate and meditative pieces. The other is a big, post-industrial space, where he is able to develop his biggest and roughest pieces

His process of creation is a performative act, and a personal spiritual process. He has developed a serious production ethic, which links clearly to both the importance of spirituality in his life, and the great degree of abstraction in his art.

This exhibition will run weekdays from 12th June - 12th July 2017. Preview Thursday 15th June 6pm-9pm
