FIRST FRIDAY ART WALK @ MAINLINE! Alan Frakes, "Some Mistaken Marks"


Oct 6, 2017 to Oct 29, 2017
06:15 PM


Fall is here!.... and that means excellent weather for strolling from gallery to gallery to see the season's newest exhibits!  join us on october 6th to enjoy  and exhibit by talented local tulsan ALAN FRAKES and his exhibit 'Some Mistaken Marks'.
      I resurrected my painting by studying with Camille Przewodek, who introduced me to colorist methods of painting by Henry Henche and Charles Hawthorne. It is through these artists and teachers I learned to convey the shape of objects with the interaction of color - rather than with tonal shade and line.
       Other artists studied with include Gay Faulkenberry and Ken Auster.
        It is important to me to paint in the moment under the light that I see and to avoid formulaic solutions to the color and value. I see my subjects in an abstract way and that is how I paint them.  I enjoy exploring art and painting technique. I am currently working on an assemblage of acrylic painted flexible aluminum surfaces and incorporating this into line and form as a 2D painting.
       I use my love of fine arts in my graphic design business as well as my personal paintings, constructions and drawings. My work is influenced by artists like; Robert Raushenberg, Richard Diebenkorn, Wayne Thiebaud and Edward Hopper as well as contemporary colorists - the likes of Charles
Sovek, Camille Przewodek and Randall Sexton.
