As a part of THE EVERYDAY project, Effy Francis will be showcasing their unique body of work for the month of August.
Effy Alece Francis was born in Marietta, GA in 1992. Publishing under the trade name E. Alece, they work primarily in digital media. Under their mother's influence, Effy was self-taught from age 10. Believing the human body to be the ultimate art form, Effy imbues their pieces with surreal eroticism and symbolism. Coming out as non-binary transgender in 2017, Effy's artwork speaks to their experience and intersecting identities as a queer, disabled individual. Currently based in Columbia, SC, Effy has shown their work at: VAE Raleigh, Ultralight 2 2018 and 701 CCA Open Studios 2013.
My work speaks to deep emotions coupled with soft imagery. Loneliness, love, death, and heartbreak are a few of the themes I paint; using flowers, intricate shapes, muted palettes, and beauty in the human form.
