Francis X. Pavy

In Third Coast Suite, Francis Pavy continues to build upon the imagery, concepts and ideas pertaining to the Louisiana coastal wetlands and surrounding waters. In the same vein as southern storytelling, Pavy constructs bold, colorful layers of iconic images reflecting local folklore. Birds, plants, insects, fish, musical instruments are all pulsating elements that together create a larger, harmonious story. The motifs in Pavy’s work play on themes of mysticism, love, nature, humor and friendship. This exhibition is made up of medium-scale unique oil block prints on paper and large-scale canvas works.
