Art + Art History Alumn Francisco Moreno: Dormant Subversion


Oliver Francis Gallery is proud to present the second solo exhibition of gallery artist Francisco Moreno, Dormant Subversion. In his paintings, and ³paint-stallations², Moreno confronts anxieties about the role of painting in the information age. Using media saturated iconography and news headlines as source material, Moreno explores the contradictions of American identity, raises questions about the value of labor, and considers how living in the media age of shapes our understanding of personal and collective history.


Francisco Moreno earned a Masters of Fine Arts (Painting 2012) with distinction from the Rhode Island School of Design, where he was awarded the Presidential Scholarship. Moreno received his BFA in painting from the University of Texas at Arlington. His work was recently published in the MFA issue of New American Paintings (Issue #99 Juried by Alma Ruiz, Senior Curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles). His work was recently the subject of the solo exhibition, Las Noticias,  at Curbs & Stoops/Rythymology, Westbury, NY. Selected group exhibitions include 2012 New Contemporaries, RISD Museum, Providence, RI; RISD MFA PAINTINGŠ, 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel, New York, NY; Present/Future, Concord Art Association, Concord, MA; and Best of the North East MFA, The Helen Day Art Center, Stowe, VT.
