Frank Egloff


The paintings of artist Frank Egloff are created from appropriated imagery found in film and vintage photos. The works are often reconfigured through cutting, copying and projecting source images onto a canvas. The objectivity of the photograph is called into question with this image manipulation. The process of reconfiguration allows the artist to exploit the source material and re-contextualize the image to unveil new formal and conceptual concerns. This Saturday, March 17, Barbara Krakow Gallery in Boston will present “Rethought,” new works by Egloff. The artist has exhibited several times with Brent Sikkema in New York City and with the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, Mass. Egloff received the Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Grant in 2002 and 2006.
