Dale Frank The Inland Sea (New Moon to the Warren), 1984, acrylic on canvas, 180 x 270 cm

It is not surprising that in Frank's practice too the artwork increasingly strove to become a person. As well as windows and stalactites, his latest wall-sized sketch has acquired teeth, a row of penises and a fringed, pupilled socket. Of its own accord, it seems, it is telling a kind of Romantic fairy-story, with caves of ice and towers and a livid moon which doubles as an eye-socket.

Exhibition Dates: 19 June – 7 July 1984
