Love Art: Music on Canvas

Works by Yvonne Frankis

May 6, 2022 - June 5, 2022

Corkran Gallery

Opening Reception: Friday, May 6, 2022 (5pm to 7pm)

“Travel with me through Love’s journey!  This art collection represents different moments in an intimate relationship…the up’s & downs…the true fiber of what constitutes love. Nature scenes are created using only Black and White acrylic paint and the shades of gray demonstrate the nuances of love in a unique way…because nothing is ever black-and-white…love is always layered in shades of gray. The classic rock music titles and lyrics selected reflect stages of relationships and the moody feelings portrayed in these minimalistic landscape paintings are designed to capture the essence of true love…hope, desire, fear, comfort, security, insecurity, passion… Allow my  LOVE ART and MUSICAL COMPILATION to transport you through the journey of love…a trip always worth taking.”

Yvonne Frankis is a painter specializing in landscapes. Her most prominent subjects are intricately winding trees, water, and expansive skyscapes. Her distinct style can be recognized through her use of greyscale and selective color. This subtle pallet gives the viewer sensations of calm stillness and whimsical mystery. Yvonne’s balance of natural elements arranged in minimalistic compositions attracts admirers of both contemporary and traditional styles.

 

Yvonne’s driving force in creating her art is music. She is hugely inspired by music, particularly classic rock, always listening while painting and naming pieces after songs. Though her art does not directly depict images of musicians or instruments, she beautifully translates the emotion of one art form to another.

 

 Yvonne has participated in over 25 solo and group exhibitions in the last 18 years. She is also a member of the Rehoboth Art League and has had a painting selected 3 times, out of nearly 10,000 submissions, to appear on the CBS “Sunday Morning” program. Yvonne earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications/Journalism from Delaware State University and studied at the Brush & Palette Art Studio.
