I first met the THE FRANKS at an Apartment Therapy gathering celebrating the contest they had just won for the design of their home. I have followed their artwork since that day. It is provocative and bold.
The Franks' Creative Process :
The Franks’ work employs the use of text, signage, and objects carrying multiple layers and interpretations. They attempt to dissect the layers to find patterns and substance. By deconstructing objects and exploring the inherent characteristics and relationships, they hope to discover something lasting and truly of value. Throughout our career we've explored many avenues of artistic production. We are currently most interested in sound and music design, photography, and video.
