Francis Domec was a Medford-based artist whose artwork explored elements of transformation. Playing with lines and figures by means of drawings and collages, Francis used all types of mediums to create something new and intriguing.
Some of his works are simply drawn using permanent ink markers. Other pieces are enhanced with linocuts,collages, impressions carved on linoleum plates and ink pressed onto the paper, unveiling multiple layers of shapes through the transparency of the original drawing. Francis reveled in this “chance element” of the creative process, describing the transformation of two different images to create something new as a spiritual experience.
Incredibly talented, Francis was also incredibly kind, gentle and generous. He passed away on September 14, 2017 at home with his husband and sister by his side. He was living with cancer since 2011, and did a fine job doing so at that.
