Francis Reynolds: Cause & Effect, November 2018

10th - 24th November 2018. Gallery open Saturdays 10.30 to 5pm; other times by arrangement.
Francis Reynolds is a British Artist who lives and works in Cambridgeshire, England. Before he returned to education
as a mature student in 2007 to study Fine Art, Reynolds was a Motorcycle Instructor; teaching people to ride motorcycles from novice to advanced standard.

Reynolds graduated with a Fine Art BA (1 st Class Honors) at Loughborough University in 2012. The initial intention at
the start of Reynolds` education was to become a secondary school teacher; as his experience of teaching others
was successful and rewarding. However, with the support of his wife, family and the local Academy employing him
as an Artist in residence, Francis can still be involved in the education of others together with continuing his practice.

Since graduating, Francis started a family yet still achieves regular exhibitions nationally alongside advising Art students. His paintings are held in Private collections throughout the UK and internationally.

Reynolds’ practice can be seen to be quite destructive in as far as process. However, it can be said that the passive/aggressive nature of the paintings lends themselves to the very nature of the human condition.

Reynolds’ outcomes strive to question and reinvigorate the subject; its historical and contemporary context.
Together with consolidating ideas of deconstruction; an act of taking apart and rebuilding. This may also highlight
the deconstruction of conventions and what is expected from representational painting.
