South of France born Boston-based artist Francis Domec studied Art in Massachusetts and earned a bachelors degree in Fine Arts and a masters degree in Museum Administration while pursuing his interest in studio art.
He is a versatile abstract painter who works in a range of media including acrylic, ink, printmaking, oil and collage. He also works in Ceramics.
His current work explores his interest for nature particularly his observation of how nature grows and multiplies through its ecological cycles. In his artists statement Francis states: Each composition is a vessel that encapsulates and shelters life in hibernation: honeycomb chambers, tree barks, sheaths of plants and seeds are elements that I am inspired by.
His work has been exhibited in Boston, New York, Las Vegas and Miami and regionally in group shows and juried competitions. His work has been selected by the De Cordova Museum of Contemporary Art in Lincoln, Massachusetts to represent the museums Corporate Art Loan Program for 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011.
