Frank Webster Paintings

October 1 - 31, 2012

Frank Webster is a painter who lives in Brooklyn, NY. Webster received his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and his MFA from the Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University. Webster is the recipient of numerous awards including the Pollock Krasner and the Golden Foundation Individual Artist Award.

Frank Webster’s paintings typically depict post-industrial landscapes drawing on the aesthetic traditions of minimalism and realism. Grounded in reality, the paintings nonetheless abstract the ordinary: the everyday world is made transcendent and strange — and is imbued with an ethereal and melancholy beauty. The sharp juxtaposition of technology and romanticism are evocative of the moment — and environment — in which we find ourselves presently. His work contemplates the paradox of this co-existence.

Webster will be a featured artist in the upcoming publication, Nature Morte: Contemporary Artists Reinvigorate the Still Life Tradition. By Michael Petry. To be published by Thames & Hudson. Forthcoming Fall 2013.
