Design By: Keith Francis
Since the late 1990's, Francis has used a varied practice of installation, sculpture, painting, graphic design and drawing to explore the complex relationship between social, political and environmental issues. In 2013 Francis began a commissioned piece called 'Reflections of Being', arguably his largest outdoor sculpture for the University of Mississippi, Museum in Oxford, MS. Through labor-intensive hand forming of stainless steel, welding and fabrication. Currently Keith is exhibiting a conceptual mixed media art piece examining the racial segregation and disenfranchisement of African Americans rights to vote in the South, called 'Let's Vote' for a "Commemorative of the Civil Rights Movement: 1964-1968" at Delaware State University, Dover, DE.
