FRANK M. ALBA

Tripping the Light Fantastic
December 7 - January 18, 2018
Reception: Thursday December 7, 2017 6-8 PM

The thought provoking, compelling (and sometimes somewhat controversial) acrylic paintings of American artist Frank M. Alba are as imaginative in scope as they are laden with subconscious meaning. As a self-taught artist, Alba has developed an artistic style that’s completely unique and seamlessly transforms ordinary subjects into something quite extraordinary and profound. Bold colors, subtle textures, and figurative forms that border on the surreal combine to create visceral images that intrigue the eye while stirring up deep human emotions in the viewer.

Much of Alba’s inspiration comes from a desire to not only capture but instill meaning via metaphor to all the various traumas that humans inevitably experience as they move through life, particularly in the childhood years. For the artist, the art becomes both a symbol of that trauma and a vehicle through which healing can ultimately be realized. As Alba explains, in the end “my paintings represent subconsciously the moments that impact one’s life.”

Frank M. Alba currently lives and works in Boston, Massachusetts.
