Ryan M Frank
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Fort Greene



ARTIST STATEMENT: My artwork combines sculpture and photography, object and imagery, the vastness and complexities of landscape contained within manmade structures such as doors, windows, boxes and other geometric formations. I take photographs of places I visit and moments I witness, not for traditional documentation but rather as a means to better understand them in their natural logic. My images are manipulated digitally and tangibly; cut up, combined and layered; and placed within constructed objects and architectural spaces. These processes transcend photography’s two-dimensionality and provide a greater context, perspective and experience than what is initially seen through my camera’s viewfinder.
