Zoey Frank: Distil

Zoey Frank, Vigil, 2013.

The work of painter Zoey Frank will be featured in the upcoming winter 2014 issue of Still Point Arts Quarterly. Frank's work is brilliantly composed and rich in its portrayal of subject and emotion. Her use of color and her understanding of light and shadow are exquisite.

Frank was born in Boulder, Colorado in 1987. She completed four years of classical atelier training under Juliette Aristides at Gage Academy of Art in Seattle and received her M.F.A. from Laguna College of Art and Design. She has received numerous honors and awards for her work. 

The paintings are studies of how light falls across form to reveal volume, and they explore the nuances that are possible within a neutral color palette. I worked primarily from direct observation and tried to capture the changes I observed in my subjects over time. In some of these paintings, I began to explore personal life experiences through allegory.
Frank lives in Laguna Beach, California. Her featured portfolio is called Distil
