I am...
Not limiting myself to a specific technique, choosing the medium that seems most appropriated for the representation of my ideas and visions, integrating a deep reflexion and questionning about the architecture and socio-cultural reality of the exhibition space, I don't hide however my origins as a painter.
About my artwork
Getting rid of any sort of indulgence, Frank transforms abject art, non-art and "degree-zero art" into refined instruments to question not only artistic production but the nature of communication itself. What makes the specific high quality of this approach is his capacity to be so severe with this potentially chaotic aesthetic; the fact that he seems not interested into developing further an intervention keeps him from "closing" his artworks and focusing the attention on themselves only. If he does not finish them, if he does not push them further, it is again because for him they are interesting only as functional tools to enter and explore the next new space. The nature of this exploration will be sympathetic but not intrusive, refusing to colonize the new area and aiming at recording the experience of the encounter and using it as a bridge for the next one to happen.
Artists I like
rebecca horn, marina abramovic, bacon, rothko, dürer, kippenberger, kelley.....
