(b. 1965, Saint Louis, MO) makes extraordinary work that explores ideas of perception, logic, and possibility. His often painstakingly rendered sculptures and works on paper inhabit the grey areas between the ordinary and the monstrous, the infinitesimal and the infinite, the rational and the uncanny. His work is often deceptive, its handmade intricacy masked by a seemingly mass-produced or prefabricated appearance. Friedman’s deadpan presentation implies content and form are seamless; expectations are overturned as the viewer slowly perceives that chasm between illusion and reality. Friedman's work has been internationally exhibited in galleries and museums, including solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Fondazione Prada, Milan; Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall; the South London Gallery, and numerous other institutions.

The works of F. Franciscus
present an exhibition highlighting modern art mostly inspired by classic European paintings often with a biblical background. The artist’s sources of inspiration include pieces by painters like Hendrick ter Brugghen, Caravaggio and Bronzino. He combines or re-arranges compositions of old masters depicting biblical stories in an up-to-date and idiosyncratic fashion. His themes are put in a modern context in an intelligent way, resulting in humorous and appealing art that can sometimes shock the viewer as well. Franciscus´paintwork is in no case meant to insult but allways tries to create space for a broader view on human kind. F. Franciscus (27 April 1959, Utrecht) studied at the Utrecht School of Art. He lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. In addition to paintings his work includes sculptures and films. Since 2012 Franciscus created under the name Franciscus & Franciscus together with spous Rienus Gündel Franciscus a growing series digital portraits named “Digital studies after Memling”. There have been exhibitions by Franciscus and by Franciscus & Franciscus in galleries, artfairs and museums in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Czech Republic, Jordan, Spain, Swiss, South Africa, U. K. and U.S.A.
