The Francis Collection

Collection Three . Early Vision Artworks


Interlocked Inverted Shape-shifter

Much more complex in construction than the three-dimensional Mintannae, this vision artwork appears to our eyes as an interlocking shape of many layered pieces of cardboard, which is flexible and can be formed into many shapes. Francis hand-painted the inside and outside of every piece of the puzzle, revealing different color schemes as it is played with. To hear Francis describe how it appears to him through his eye, it sounds as though the piece completely encompasses whoever holds it and moves it around.
