Francis Denys develops a multi-faceted oeuvre examining the functionality/finality of the visual arts. Through use of sculptural elements and photography he accentuates, doubles or reveals forms and situations. In a more or less restrained manner, and often by means of poor materials and minimal forms and concepts, the act of thinking about and looking at an artwork is reflected or blurred. This results, not infrequently, in a mildly developing smile or an insight that tries to escape us.
Since 2017 he is artistic director of De Y-Factor, Leuven.
