ArtCrawl Harlem presents Francks Deceus "Spring Break" Artist Talk

Francks F. Deceus born in Cap-Haitien, Haiti, currently resides and maintains a studio in Brooklyn, NY. He received a B.A. in sociology from Long Island University. His artwork is aesthetically influenced by artists like Norman Lewis and Howarddena Pindell, and reverberates with some of the artistic strains of his native Haiti. His modernist style combines figurative, abstract, and layered elements and relies heavily on a simplification of form and function. His works characterized by a semiotic economy, minimalist use of imagery, and a deliberately limited palette range within series of work.

"Games People Play"

ArtCrawl Harlems Boundaries & Connections Artist Residency is a unique themed Program. This year's theme, "Games People Play" brings together a diverse group of visual and literary artists exploring the intricacies of human relationships in the context of social, political, economic, familial, and love dynamics. This interdisciplinary project welcomes painters, collagists, fiber artists, writers, photographers and installation artists to engage in a creative dialogue that transcends traditional boundaries.                                                                                                     

Throughout the residency, these talented artists will collaborate and independently create thought-provoking works of art that challenge, question, and reflect upon the multifaceted nature of our interactions with one another. From the vibrant canvases of painters to the intricate textures of fiber artists, from the evocative words of writers to the captivating snapshots of photographers, "Games People Play" promises a rich tapestry of artistic expressions.
