Today we’d like to introduce you to Frank Synowicz.
Frank is a multidisciplinary new media/digital artist and designer working with Computer graphics, visual effects, video, virtual reality, and traditional painting and drawing.
In addition to his film, television, and commercial work, Frank has exhibited as a fine artist sharing his paintings, drawings, and digital work with audiences through a number of successful solo and group shows, both locally and internationally. He is currently represented by the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art (LACDA), where he is a member artist displaying digital prints and video art on a monthly basis
Frank presents the new art projects “Hail to the Chief” and “Composite of the Chiefs” where using anthropological deconstruction he generates a demystification of the American Presidents.
Please tell us about your art.
This portrait series reflects the fun house nature of the American political process. The circus-like spectacle distorts details of the individuals seeking the prime office. Our relation to them is mainly from the many facets of historical representation and media coverage. Their exalted placement conjures a synthetic character, which becomes warped as it is consumed by the world. This feeds the base of American mythology and the drive of current campaigns.
The fight for control plays out on the public stage, triggering a national identity crisis. Attacks and propaganda distort reality, twisting these most famous of faces. Strings pulled for posturing position, propping up the most promised person at the helm. A side step song and dance, juggling talking points and agenda. A pageant of manufactured personality. Placing in the public eye a poster picture of power and promise.
Do you have any advice for other artists? Any lessons you wished you learned earlier?
Keep learning and expanding your artistic vocabulary and horizons.
How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
