Action-packed, gestural, full of drips and motion and the movement of paint across the canvas, Sam Francis’s (GZ123) eponymous collaboration with Swatch is an action painting on the wrist. The bold dial is a deep crimson with a saturated blue field of colour floating over black. The hands are red as well, and the strap features black shapes, aquamarine pools and red, yellow, blue and green splashes. Full of the presence of the artist’s hand and the evidence of time, one can almost feel the painting taking place on one’s wrist. Flexible and plastic with moments of transparency, this work is a true Art Special—special art in the form of a watch.
