Francks Deceus @ MoCADA

Francks Deceus

I discovered Francks Deceus a number of years back at the Brooklyn Museum's wonderful exhibit, WORKING IN BROOKLYN. I loved his passionate -- deceptively simple -- aesthetic. I visited Francks' studio and was moved by just about every piece. I included some of his pieces in the first exhibit I curated at the Abrons Arts Center in 2004. I just rediscovered his work at The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA) exhbiit: "Ancient Futures: The DNA of Cultures & Civilizations." This fragment is from a larger piece, "Pilgrimage from Scattered Points." It is stunning.

I have four pieces of his work since 2002 and the growth that he has shown is amazing. He is one of the artists that I will continue to collect over time. I bought two large works from this most recent "Pilgrimmage" collection. Fabulous work.
