For over thirty years Dale Frank has experimented with materials; oil paint, hubcaps, enamel, graphite, fibreglass and disco balls are just some of the elements that have appeared in his work. For the last decade, varnish has monopolised his attention. The maturity of this obsession is palpable in WACKY DUCK FLUFFY TOM.
