"Primary Raft" by Ke Francis | Color Woodcut | 18"x24" inches | From the Rafter series⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ _⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ke says, "The Rafter Series is narrative work but it is an implied narrative. The characters in these paintings (or the abandoned rafts) tell a story and there is a communication going on there between the elements of the painting; the storm, the figures, the sharks, the monkeys, the snakes but we are not privy to that conversation...we are just witnessing it and the text is 'muted'.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ _⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The raft is a simple means of conveyance, easily constructed and easy to steer. Loggers bundled large trees into rafts and floated them down the Mississippi river to port cities where they were disassembled and cut up for lumber. A raft can be a vessel and the cargo at the same time and that, of course, makes it a great metaphor for art. It is a great metaphor for our lives, as well. Our birth into this world is an individual experience as is our departing. We are carried along the flow of our lives like a raft in a river’s current. We can steer a course but we can’t return upstream. The raft is a confined space; a stage set for my mini-narratives. There is a dialogue between the images and shapes on the picture plane but the sound is muted. The powerful images are part of our collective consciousness and we must determine their meaning as we build our personal myth.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ _⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Art is not “entertainment”. All art contains some entertainment but all entertainment does not contain art. My artworks are experiences that can change as you grow. They are investments in your future."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ _⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #abstract #woodcut #abstractart #abstractartist #abstractartwork #modernart #contemporaryart #narrativeart #narrativeartist #kefrancis #kefrancisart #mississippiart #mississippiartist #woodcut #colorwoodcut #rafterseries Sent via @planoly #planoly

More ink swatches from my big color chart that hangs on my studio wall. I love the pink that seeps off of the Cool Peri ink from @ranger_ink. Also, they don’t make Juniper anymore (so sad) but Pistachio is kiiiiinda close if you’re desperate ☹️. . . . . . #inspirationoftheday #inkaddict #fluidpainting #fluidart #rangerink #inkcolor #originalart #alcoholinkart #abstractartwork #abstractpainting #alcoholink #alcoholinks #colorswatches #colorswatch #colorguide #abstractartist #yupo #yupopaper #fluidartist #originalartwork #colourpop #manifestation #manifest #artlover #artstudio #colorpop #psychedelicart #colorchart #colorobsessed #colorfullife

Slowly moving all the art supplies into the new painting studio. Still have the whole back wall to finish lining and door to go in! But it's almost a workable space :)
