Francis Salole is a painter based in Paekakariki. In these weavings he has cut up his own past works and has reassembled them.
“By dissecting previous paintings, drawings and prints, I’m breaking down past narratives and old ideas. By weaving them together I am reimagining and revivifying them” says Francis.
“Art is pattern, with the potential to soothe, confuse, surprise or alarm.”
“We are pattern - seeking beings. Through our exquisite suite of senses we perceive complex patterns and weave them moment to moment into a model of who we are and what the world is.”
Blindspot os an exhibition of vibrant new woven paintings by Francis Salole.
