Frank Faulkner Quadriptych Painting, 1988


These incredible works of art were created by Frank Faulkner (American, born 1946). The patterns of the four works flow into one another, creating a continued image. The work is quite unique in execution, employing a metallic paint in an abstract series of lines and dots to create the overall pattern. The pattern even extends to the outer edges of the canvas. The art is in perfect original condition, and displays beautifully. Each section is signed and dated by the artist on the reverse sides. Each panel measures 48 inches wide, to create a total length of 16 feet! Frank Faulkner received his B.F.A. and M.F.A. from the University of North Carolina. Faulkner's work quickly won him numerous grants and awards, including an individual artist grant from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1974. He has been featured in dozens of one-person and group exhibitions here as well as in Japan, Switzerland, and Germany. Faulkner's work is owned by leading museums and by renowned collectors such as Nelson Rockefeller, Baron Leon Lambert, Phillip Hanes and Abba Eban. Faulkner sets up a system, say, of dots or dashes, then subtly changes the visual rhythms in order to add life and surprise—what he calls "the gymnastics of seeing." Awards: North Carolina Arts Council, 1991 Collaboration Artist Award, American Institute of Architects, 1976 SECCA National Endowment Grant, 1976 National Endowment for the Arts, Individual Artists Grant, 1976 Urban Walls Project, National Endowment for the Arts Grant Winston-Salem, North Carolina, 1974.
