June 30 – August 12
Opening Friday 30 June 6.00pm
Neon Parc is delighted to announce the opening of new work by one of Australia’s most critically acclaimed and widely respected contemporary artists, Dale Frank.
Dale will present a suite of large scale experimental paintings which test the boundaries of visual perception and physical sensation. The viewer is arrested by the effortless sophistication in which Frank utilises emotive materials such as blood, liquid glass, rubber masks, human hair and glitter, affirming his singular voice in contemporary art.

Recent solo exhibitions include Pearl Lam Galleries, Hong Kong; Roslyn Oxley9, Sydney, both 2017; Merril Lynch Bank of America, Art Los Angeles Contemporary, both 2016; Art Cologne, Neon Parc, Melbourne, both 2015.
