Perdidos En Silentium  Painting, Acrylic on Canvas, 46.0 inch x 62.0 inch


This is a large scale collage painting by internationally renowned visual artist Franck de las Mercedes.

FdlM lives and works in New York City. His body of work includes painting and collage in which he combines abstract figuration, journal entry, and hieroglyphic-like text, in energetic abstractions bursting with color. In Franck’s paintings, childhood memories in war-torn Nicaragua and his upbringing as an immigrant in the US, are extracted and combined with fragments of current events, family dynamics and books. Exploring the contrast between memory and present-day cultural context, Franck creates scenes of an emotionally charged urban landscape.

As an artist living and working in New York City, my urban habitat  has always been source of inspiration. My surroundings and a fascination with the abstract expressionism movement played a major role in me becoming a visual artist. My collage paintings fuse photographic imagery, sketches, drawings, journal pages, scribbles on paper and text art applied with acrylic paint using a palette knife. Bright colors and raw textures are an essential element in my work.
