Dale Frank's New Exhibition Opens at Roslyn Oxley9

Swirling the conceptual.

Australian contemporary artist Dale Frank has just opened his most recent exhibition titled Toby Jugs. Having been represented by Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery since 1982, it goes without saying that Frank's exceptional works have long been a part of Sydney's art soul.

For Toby Jugs Frank has painted on mirror, creating 22 new pieces that blow the mind up close. Known for his signature abstract works featuring swirling colours, Frank says, "conceptual painting understands the gesture not as a singular event but as a strategic intervention into the history of art, reflecting conditions of art, producing situations that show art in a light that is constantly new and changing."
 
He continues, "Painting is essentially conceptual, by positioning a work within a particular set of external references, it self-referentially and self-critically addresses its material qualities as well as the symbolic grammar of its own formal language."
 
 
You can find view his works at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery from now until 4 October. Get down there!
