Dale Frank, one of Australia’s most acclaimed Artists, will delight Auckland audiences with an exhibition of recent paintings. His new series of works are as visceral as ever - the result of a highly complex painting technique in which intensely coloured varnish is poured layer upon layer in different stages of the drying process. In the resulting enigmatic and lyrical abstractions, surfaces are laden with colours that collide and separate, literally reacting with each other. In Devon is my favourite Luncheon meat a maturity of style is evident in the ease of transition between layers and testament to the dedication Frank has shown to his materials and processes over the past two and a half decades.
