Sam Francis Monotype Untitled, 1984-85 dazzles in front of your eyes with radiant colors splattered sporadically along a crisp white sheet. The blank white spaces are charged with bright paints, trailing across the paper in such an effortless pace. You can truly see Sam Francis’ graceful wristwork active across the entire work. Less mystical than some of his more mysterious and sensual pieces, we sense a more serene and uplifting power of hope. Circular shapes float in most corners accompanied by angular arabesques and dynamic arches. There is incredible texture that provides a sense of depth. Along with these diverse elements, Sam Francis incorporates solid colors of canary gold, lilac, orange, ruby red, violet, sea green, indigo, and aquamarine. Some hues are muted in micro expressive ways while others are juxtaposed right next to each other. The abstraction of this work is representative of his entire oeuvre as a successful artist in his usage of empty white spaces and bursts of paint splatters. Created with an incredible sense of controlled balance, Sam Francis Monotype Untitled, 1984-85 exudes nothing but a powerful and elegant artwork.

Created in 1984-85, this Unique Original Monotype with oil paint, dry pigment, and ink on handmade paper is hand signed by Sam Francis (San Mateo, 1923 - Santa Monica, 1994) in ink on verso.
