Zoey Frank

14th Annual ARC Salon (2019-2020)

Zoey Frank

United States

Zoey Frank (b. 1987, Boulder Colorado) creates complex representational paintings that pose questions about what it means to be alive and an observer in the modern age. She explores the passage of time by allowing the objects and figures she is observing to shift in ways both subtle and dramatic as her paintings move from inception to completion. Allowing the remnants of these changes to remain visible on the surface of her finished paintings creates textured and intimately observed glimpses into contemporary life.

Frank received her MFA in painting from Laguna College of Art and Design in Laguna Beach, California after studying for four years with Juliette Aristides in the Classical Atelier at Gage Academy of Art in Seattle, Washington. She has received numerous honors and awards, including three Elizabeth Greenshields grants, the Avigdor Arikha Memorial International Residency Scholarship, the Artist’s Magazine All Media Competition Grand Prize of 2012, the Hudson River Fellowship in 2012, and scholarships from the Albert K. Murray Foundation, the Stacey Foundation, and the Art Renewal Center. Her work has been featured in, among other publications, Fine Art Connoisseur, American Art Collector, the International Artist Magazine, Artist’s Magazine, and Southwest Art and is exhibited in galleries across the United States and Europe.
