Francis Giacco’s oil paintings are luminous and evocative studies of light, colour and form. Giacco imbues his works with sensitivity and emotion, exploring the relationships between people, objects and their environments. This exhibition brings together three series of works. Giacco invites the viewer into the hazy glow and tangible warmth of paintings made during the intense, low light of sunset. These works are captivating and mysterious, the artist’s Vermeer-like interiors portraying the nudes and familiar objects Giacco returns to many times in his works such as the screen, musical instruments, puppets, fabric and tapestries.
