The last couple of weeks, I’ve mainly been concentrating on the following paintings. The male John Doe portrait is being shipped to New York as we speak, for the Context art fair. The female Jane Doe XL isn’t quite finished yet, but I’m getting there. Hand mixing pigment and epoxy resins is very time consuming, but I still believe the result is quite stunning.
A quick update on upcoming exhibitions, as my work will be shown at two art fairs in the coming weeks:
Art Breda 2016
Context New York
The past month I have been extremely busy making new work.
I’m still working on a Jane Doe XL that should be finished in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, I also made a male and female portrait. These pieces will be shown at Galerie Van Campen en Rochtus in Knokke, at the Belgian coast. Hope you like them!
Let the madness begin…
This week I started working on a new Jane Doe piece measuring 200 by 160 centimeters. It’s the beginning of a long, slow and meticulous process that involves mixing and applying large amounts of different shades of different colors. At the moment, I have mixed and applied 14 different colors on the painting, and have approximately 265 to go… You’ll have to bear with me for the final result, but if you’re curious about what it’ll look like visit the Jane Doe page for other examples and for more information about this type of work.
From 24th until 28th February, Call Me Frank will be exhibiting at Art up! Lille with the Cube Gallery. New paintings will be shown along with recent work.
On top of that, a special event will be hosted on the opening night: ‘Take your best shot at being Frank’. At the Cube Gallery booth, you will literally be able to take a ‘shot’ at being an artist, creating the opportunity of going home with a self-made piece of art. At the end of the fair, Frank will personally select the best artwork without knowledge of who made it. That person wins an original Call Me Frank artwork. This implies that the typical roles will have switched: the viewer (critic) will now become the artist who’s work will be critiqued.
