Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery presents new works by Dale Frank in Shaun taught piano for its debut online exhibition.
With the new addition of powdered pigments, there is a watercolour-like translucency to these dazzling new works that make them shimmer in ethereality, like floating cosmos, lost in the dream of a summer’s day. At times with a glaring vibrancy, they draw us in. Brilliantly reflective, the surfaces of each work become both the observed and the observer.
Frank keeps us at a distance conceptually, gifting us with his seductive outer world which becomes us, the viewer and the world we have stepped into. Reflected back on ourselves, like Narcissus, we see the world within, often blurred, distorted or partially exposed. Frank’s explorations offer up a considered discourse into the history of painting, questioning both the artist’s and the viewer’s role while holding space for this discourse, just like his paintings, to change and evolve over time.
This exhibition is open by appointment. Please contact the gallery to arrange a suitable viewing time.
