Dot-Art: Work in Progress – Frank Linnett.

Dot-Art: Work in Progress – Frank Linnett 23rd January – 2nd March 2012

Frank is a well established Liverpool artist, based at Bridewell Studios, who has been exhibiting regionally and nationally for over 25 years. The artist will be showing a new series of large scale oil on canvas work on the theme of “work in progress”, exploring the ever-changing, mulit-layered nature of landscapes.

This series of recent paintings is an exploration of how landscape can reveal the past; ancient monuments, mystical burial sites, sacred stones and architectural forms often exist side by side with more recent and contemporary constructions. Frank continues: “The landscape has been witness to a constant ‘work in progress’: to live, build, worship, set rules and moral codes, to celebrate life, dream and ultimately to die. Evidence of this can be found as marks and signs left in a graffiti of symbols embedded in the surface of the landscape. Within this cycle what has gone before is often entombed but in turn forms the foundations of the next generation.My interest in these ideas has led me to invent and reinterpret these notions in an imaginative way with the playful use of disparate images and forms.”

The exhibition is open to the public from 12-6pm Monday to Friday and by appointment, at dot-art
