About Francesco

Born in 1958 in Paris from a British mother with a French background and a Belgian father with an Italian background, Ruspoli has presented his work in international art fairs and international galleries, increasing worldwide exposure.
He has been the recipient of several important international awards and medals such as mention a few: Eugene Fromentin Award and Gold Medal in France, Masters Award and Honorable Award in the USA, Gold Medal in China, Honorary Award of Distinction, and Honorable Award in the UK, Silver Medal in Italy.
Inspired by his surroundings, Ruspoli moved towards a new way of working stimulated by artists such as Chaim Soutine, Georges Rouault, Henri Matisse, Edward Munch, and Egon Schiele.
Ruspoli art workplaces the human figures in an abstract environment supported by a vivid use of colours where subtle gradation and dramatic contrast express nuance of emotion and sensuous physicality. The work also expresses the direct sensation of lived experience through organic shapes and forms woven from flowing lines and the viewer's gaze. You are invited to participate in a creative encounter with these elements constructing your visual languages and meanings.
Ruspoli is internationally awarded some of his paintings in Museum's permanent collections.

Artist Statement

Francesco Ruspoli's work explores relational space and its shifting possibilities within the contemporary world in which we all dwell. It explores the dynamic frontier between abstraction and figuration, keeping alive the infinite possibilities of being human in an age intent upon limiting them. Here is a certain defiant romanticism that insists that emotions are precious, that meaning is creative, and that there is a world beyond commodities.

Using a strikingly vibrant palette, each painting presents a harmonious dance of colour where subtle gradation and dramatic contrast express nuances of emotion and sensuous physicality. It offers a timely reminder of our shared embodied life with its hopes and dreams, pain and loss, and the poignancy of yearning. Thus, the eternal human dance of reaching out and holding back is movingly enacted - with the viewer included
