Dale Frank That European Shame Tree, 1982, acrylic and impregnated varnishes on canvas, 90 x 150 cm

It is a world that submerges us completely. At no point can we be certain of the position of the artist. We are reminded of the miasmic impact of Artaud, of the early Michaux, and more recently of the fires of Anselm Kiefer. The symbols expand and swim in an oblique sea of dissolving connections. We are talking about an oeuvre without clarity, but it is the very absence of clarity that is the vehicle for the emotional impact of these images.
