Lisa A. Frank
For Scout A, Very Good Dog: Modern Baroque Style Floral Still Life Digital Print

2013

$1,800

About

Archival digital print, edition of 50 34 x 29.5 inches unframed Lisa Frank’s new body of work produces complex arrangements of flowers and dark vegetation reminiscent of Baroque still lifes and tapestry. Frank stages, duplicates and then layers photographic elements to create work that keeps the viewer fixated in her realm of digitally manipulated imagination. In this piece, the artist has digitally collaged twisted vines, dried leaves, pink, yellow, and purple flowers, and turtle shells in intricate patterns to resemble a Baroque tapestry. The contemporary vertical digital print is available in additional sizes. Artist's Statement: I make large scale photographs that depict complex patterns. These patterns are composed from elements of nature and are presented in the form of traditional wallpaper designs. Densely ornamental, my artwork draws upon my own background as a textile designer as well as the interior decoration documents of Britain’s Aesthetic Movement of the late 19th century. The patterns are constructed from daily snapshots and scanographs composed in my studio. Combinations of motifs are “sewn” together through extreme image layering and masking. Often working with over 100 layers, a photographic grouping is created and then given a “repeat” structure - a textile design term referring to the way a pattern is set up to tile seamlessly in any direction. The ability of these patterns to endlessly tile creates the potential for multiple size works ranging from large individual prints to full room installations. Choosing to focus on natural elements that are not commonly appreciated or used for decorative purposes, my artwork is connected to the “wildness” in nature even as it is taming it by the creation of formal patterning. Creating a context for connection, it is my hope to draw the viewer into a local world as it hasn’t been seen before: charged with wonder, rich, complex and changeable while being inclusive and accessible.
