David Franklin artist Artwork publication Untitled Drawings cover photo

My publication “Untitled Drawings” is now available.

“Untitled Drawings” collects a series of works completed over the last few years, exploring shifting realties; fragmentation and mutation; architecture, landscape, and perception; the uncanny and the unconscious. These works possess a fetishistic focus, sliding between abstraction and representation, employing a distilled set of techniques (ink, pencil, paper) to explore the possibilities and unrealities of the world around us.

David Franklin artwork Empire of Rats publication

I have a new publication, Empire of Rats, which was published by Idensitat for the recent exhibition Estructuras de Excepción, and features a text exploring ruins, cultural memory, nationalism, and commercialism. It also includes a series of photos I took while living in Japan of several abandoned sites, as well as photos of Barcelona’s port area, which served as the starting point for the work.
