There are so many alluring components to Frank’s work. Glossy varnish is manipulated to create complex amalgamations, almost infinite in their intricacy. Portholes to the conscious and subconscious, conjuring up past memories and the future unknown, they are bewildering and spellbinding objects. There is a serenity in all that explosion of colour, contrary in their loudness, they are hushed and soothing in their materiality and detail.
‘Toby Jugs’ is a skewing of the real, a slight deformation in all that glossy perfection. This is not a show to quickly pop into, but one to get truly lost within.
