Lounge Erotik Series:
A range of distressed, mistressed and witnessed images. His nude work has been described as "having all the voluptuousness of an actress in a Tinto Brass movie" and "likely to be found on the walls of Patrick Bateman." (Artpimp 2004).
Artpimp interviewed francis about his series:
Artpimp. What the fuck's it about geezer?
Francis. Well let me cogitate over this briefly. Okay the focus is on the model her beauty, her strength and how this conveys her attitude and personality.
Artpimp. Do what?
Francis. If her attitude conveys the erotic - so much the better.
The images juxtapose the mundane with the sensual - the bland, the wallpaper pattern, with the provocative, to create an image that is ordinary and at the same time extraordinary.
Artpimp. Do me a fucking favour!
Francis. As Tyler Brule said "wallpaper is what surrounds us" and don't you want to be surrounded by these images?
Artpimp. Ever the self-publicist.
Francis is currently in a witness protection programme
having faked his own breakfast.
