The work of Franklin Matthews is stark. Composed of a myriad of black and grey marks
on white grounds, the drawings are stark.
The artist’s choice of medium becomes a visceral metaphor for the
content. Matthews employs his consummate
drafting skills in the execution of this collection that examines life on the
streets of Jacksonville. These
compelling images are simultaneously endearing and disturbing. Stark white surfaces and graphic dark marks unite
to offer a transcendental journey to the viewer. Perhaps, they offer a map toward
understanding and peace. Please join us
