Renowned Australian artist, Dale Frank, returns to Gow Langsford with a selection of new abstract paintings. The works in this exhibition are smaller in scale than the large scale paintings we have come to expect from Frank. In these works Frank returns to a monochromatic palette pouring the thick coloured varnish onto mirrored Perspex. Many of the works have additional materials added to the surface such as crushed glass or globules of solid varnish which make them more complex both visually and structurally. While the controlled exploitation of varnish has been Frank’s signature of the past decades, the use of even more unconventional materials continues Frank’s ongoing exploration of the concept of painting.
