Art I’m Loving… Dale Frank

Dale Frank is an Australian abstract painter whose art has been exhibited around the globe, including at the Venice Biennale (1984), Sydney Biennale (1990), and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney (2000). His practice has evolved, and his current creations involve merging numerous vivid colors together on a singular surface. He does this by tilting his canvases at different angles every so often, allowing his paint to move across the surface until the varnish is set as he so desires. The colors interact and separate from other, resulting in a bold statement of dramatic colors that affect all the senses. A single work can involve up to 24 hours of continuous attention, though the paint application appears random and spontaneous. Are you as in awe as I am?
