In his first solo exhibition at the Weston Art Gallery, Guggenheim Fellowship award winning painter Frank Herrmann (Cincinnati, OH) presents a new series of large-scale acrylic paintings and watercolor works on paper that explores mysterious bulbous forms suspended in primordial landscapes. Herrmann’s evocative paintings suggest an emerging culture evolving in a recurrent cycle of growth, regeneration, and decay. These multi-layered paintings reflect the artist’s aggressive persistence in pushing these expressions toward a final resolution, one that requires time and contemplation, yielding new discoveries upon each viewing.
