A look at the Works of Frank Gonzales

View gallery

The work of Frank Gonzales is about taking reference from various sources including books, the net and photos to comprise and create his own imagery. By creating the paintings through reference or made up elements, there becomes a play between artificiality and realism.

Frank: I like to combine elements that may seem believable picture wise, but wouldn’t normally thrive in real life. My compositions are never thought out much beforehand. I like the spontaneity of starting with a background color or single image as a jump off point for the rest of the painting. One image will spark another and the process takes shape from there. I find this way of working to be both exciting and uncertain. My various marks and color glitches mimic this uncertainty resulting in visual stillness and movement.
