Influenced by the movements of color field and action painting, Francine Tint’s paintings are the result of a process of disclosure, drawn from her own life events, dreams, and literature. Tint has been the proud recipient of grants and awards such as the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Grant, two Pollock Krasner Grants, and a recent Honorable Mention from the Butler Institute. Tint’s work has been shown extensively both nationally and internationally; and is held in the permanent collections of over 27 museums, including the Portland Art Museum, the Heckscher Museum of Art, and the Krannert Art Museum. She has been featured in over 30 solo shows, most recently at Cavalier Galleries in New York City.

Artist Statement:

“My paintings serve as records of a process of disclosure, drawn from my own life events, literature, and dreams. Finding inspiration in the movements of color-based and action painting, and painters such as Larry Poons, I have developed a unique and personalized art practice.

Working wet on wet, I create expressive, mural-sized paintings which concentrate on color and motion. My process is deliberate and confident; I begin with poured washes on unprimed canvas and build energy and space through sharp bursts of color and aggressive mark making. Allowing for both openness and density of marks across the canvas, I see my paintings as a means to convey a unique sense of light, color, and surface. While I consider myself first and foremost a painter, I make use of a diverse range of mark making techniques, both traditional and unconventional. Working on both floor- and wall-mounted surfaces, I move paint across raw canvas instinctively, using tools such as brooms, squeegees, brushes, sticks, and rollers, and integrating hand drawn elements, poured washes, and collage.

My paintings begin as a personal dialogue and are deeply involved with process, but ultimately I see them as an invitation for viewers to have their own journey and reflection.”

In the Press:

“Tint has been working long and hard to differentiate her work from its former context and time frame, doing her best to drag her own unique brand of Color Field painting” – Piri Halasz, The Observer (on Tint’s show at Walter Wickiser Gallery)

“The current paintings of Francine Tint express a variety of truths with a great vigor and deftness of touch.” – Dominique Nahas, Art International

“Tint has remained true to her original convictions about what a painting can be […] Her strengths have always been her idiosyncratic sense of color, her ability to draw energetically at large scale, and her refusal to make ingratiating pictures. In her recent work, her audacity is undiminished, her orchestration of hues more uninhibited than ever, and her drawing…even more predictable” – Karen Wilkin, Art In America
