The Southwest School of Art presents Works on Paper by Dana Frankfort. Using text as an introductory action, Dana Frankfort layers, distorts, and redacts letterforms into visual abstractions of blocks, lines, and curves. The immediacy of the text’s message is amplified or distorted through the material processes of obliteration and retraction and the literal meanings of her terms are distorted, becoming self-referential. Frankfort’s visual manipulation of text illustrates the cumbersome suggestions of language and the limitations inherent to communication. The complexity of her painting and printmaking processes opposes the essentialism of the sentiments. "Works on Paper" is Dana Frankfort’s first exhibition in San Antonio.
