Flatland Gallery Amsterdam toont digitaal bewerkte beelden van schilder F. Francisus en zijn partner en grafisch ontwerper Rienus Gündel Franciscus. Samen werkten zij aan een reeks surrealistische fotografische portretten van persoonlijkheden op een manier die refereert aan de Vlaamse kunstschilder Hans Memling (Seligenstadt, ca. 1430-40 – Brugge, 11 augustus 1494), een van de eerste schilders die zijn modellen voor een achtergrond afbeeldde.

The renaissance painters like Caravaggio used themes like human emotion and behaviour that inspired Franciscus & Franciscus for their digitally painted surreal portraits. But even if Franciscus & Franciscus encourage us to discover visual references with the classics, their work always stays recognizable as a true Franciscus because of the artist personal ideas and interpretation. Frans Franciscus loves to paint Madonna, satire, black people and underground scene.
