Artist / Matt Franks

“The intensification of common dumb cartoon imagery is at the heart of Matt Frank’s sculptures. Taking conventional, reduced, two-dimensional renderings of images such as skulls, nuclear bomb explosions, swirls and vortexes, Franks solidifies these graphic simplifications into three-dimensional forms in ludicrously bright acidic or pastel colours. Composited into intricate, near Baroque, comical and outlandish objects. Franks’s sculptures don’t seem to be depictions of either straight-forwardly inanimate things nor of creatures in their own right. Rather they seem to be bodies that lie somewhere between the two, hybrids with their own mysterious exuberance” Suhail Malik
