Sam Francis Untitled Acrylic, circa 1982 showcases a dynamic work of art where a figure of a woman emerges from the splashes and spatters of paint. The simple color palette of deep blue accentuates the minimalist quality of this piece. In the center of the image, the body of a woman is gracefully contoured, extending out onto the edges of the paper. Only the bottom half of her face is visible, just reappearing at the very center of the work. Contrasting against a stark white background, you can see the delicate yet abrupt paint spatters strewn all across the paper. Francis allows you to imagine the motion of his wrist work, as if he is there with you live painting. Each flick of paint gives off a textural element, creating an element of dimensionality. Truly enigmatic, Untitled Acrylic, circa 1982 makes a grand impression on anyone marveling at this wonderful piece. This work of art exudes a beautifully mysterious style that draws us to further examine and probe all of its artistic glory.
Created circa 1982, this unique acrylic on paper is stamped with The Sam Francis Estate stamp by Sam Francis (San Mateo, 1923 - Santa Monica, 1994) and stamped signature on the verso.
