Overview

“On entering the dark space, and within that space, the viewer sees the jewels in focus, and leaving the space, the jewels become impressed upon the mind as a residual image that never leaves the mind.” — Dale Frank

Hong Kong—Pearl Lam Galleries is delighted to present a solo exhibition of new paintings by Dale Frank entitled When his wife went away on her frequent business trips Alex would often wear nothing but Huggies disposable nappies around their apartment.

Probing the ontological qualities of art, Frank considers painting as an open form for expressing a tactile state that is not bound by worldly events or authorship of individuals. Running contrary to the belief that art should be made for human viewing, Frank argues that artworks should point out how they can act and exist in their own right to achieve an ideal physical state that can go beyond the realms of human perception. For time may be the only element that governs the making and reception of art.

Frank states the importance of time in his artwork: “Time is just a material I use and must master, as with paint. Time is context. Time is a physical, solid property. Time is as fluid as gravity and varnish, but as regulated as concrete. Time is the only constant material I use across all other mediums in my work. Time is the agenda and completion of lists that marks out both the individual works and the life of an artist.”
