The UNF Gallery of Art welcomed Andrea Frank, contemporary artist and Assistant Professor of Photography from State University of New Paltz, New York. Andrea’s stunning works, featuring photography, digital and hand manipulation, and mixed media, explored the concept of Lysis, defined as “decomposition” or “breaking down.” By capturing the minute natural changes in the forest, Frank revealed what sustains and surrounds us: an interconnected ecosystem and its immeasurable power and magnitude. Large archival pigment prints are digitally composed and at times scratched and hand colored. In another series, where the artist collaborated with UNF Assistant Professor of Printmaking, Sheila Goloborotko, water-based inks are screen printed over the seemingly fluid stroke of minuscule droplets of ink that make up the photographic images.
The exhibition will be on display at the UNF Gallery of Art, Building 2/Founders Hall, 1 UNF Drive, Jacksonville, FL, 32224, 904-620-2534. All Gallery events are free and open to the public. UNF charges $5 for parking (no charge after 5:00 pm Fridays).
