Synapsis Universum

Solo exhibition with work on view by Reuben Francois

Opening Friday, August 5th, 2022
844 North Broad Street Philadelphia PA

Reuben Francois is a painter, interested in the way art can be used as a tool for expressing esoteric ideas of life. Currently, he is completing a series of works named ‚ÄúDiagrams”. The series centers on the concept of syncretism; the idea that many religions and cultures have similar stories and archetypes. Symbolism, in the Carl Jung school of thought, is a major part in Reuben’s creative and theoretical decision making. For Reuben, symbols serve as a way to express the inexpressible. By collecting symbols in a picture plane, painting brushes the shoulders of metaphysics.

His work is both a declaration of his personal philosophy as well as an emanation of his own spiritual journey;  a time capsule to his 23 years experienced on Spaceship Earth.
