Sam Francis Untitled, 1982 is a brightly painted unique work of art that soothes the soul at first glance. No matter where you look you see balance and harmony. Each element is in complete sync with one another—each color, form, and shape. Upon closer inspection, Francis instills a sense of chaos within the pictorial frame while maintaining equilibrium. Ingenious is the nature of this work that drives one to continue to stare in admiration. The background consists of three solid colors of red, white, and blue that are interlocked with each other. The foreground is playfully colored with splotches of paints in lighter hues of blue, lavender, orange, purple, and yellow. They are splattered evenly throughout the stretch of the paper but add just the right amount of liveliness. Cleverly rendered is the composition of the serpent-like curves that weave through each other. Each curve sections off the background into irregular shapes that create a map-like image. Anyone can appreciate this piece and sense the poetic and structural qualities Francis has mastered. You can experience the movement and energy that undulates throughout the surface where tactility becomes within of reach.

Created in 1982, this unique original monotype with oil paint, dry pigment, watercolor, and ink on handmade paper is hand signed by Sam Francis (San Mateo, 1923- Santa Monica, 1994) in pencil in the lower right.
