View Mikel Frank's Gallery
Mikel's work is about expression and abstraction. Process is very important to him and the act of painting and "pushing the paint" around is at the center of his art making process. He uses various types of medium to create images and make marks and textures. He enjoys collage and working with encaustic techniques (melted bees wax) to bring color and image together.
Since 2010 Mikel has been collaborating with fellow artist Gerard Amsellem. They have been creating large scale paintings and collages on doors and other surfaces.
Mikel and Gerard, aka, The Visual Passion Duo will be painting live on stage at 60 Woodland Road (formerly known as The Woman's Club) at Noon and 3:00 pm the day of the Studio Tour. There will be music and refreshments. Sculptor Walter Zimmerman will also be showing his work at this unique venue.
