Catalogue Note

"[I] have been reading a lot of astronomy lately [which] has already influenced my paintings. The paintings have become, since, much more cosmological in feeling and of much greater spatial expansion. Ambivalent spaces which seem to be bounded yet unlimited. And also some that seem to be limited in a certain sense I can't explain and yet unbounded by a frame." Sam Francis, 1952
