ABOUT FRANK BOYLE
Frank Boyle was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1960 and has been living in Australia since 1982.
A BFA graduate from the National Art School, Sydney in 2000, Frank has since had several successful solo exhibitions in Sydney and exhibited in many group shows.
Frank had predominantly been a landscape painter producing work inspired by the Scottish landscapes of his childhood and the NSW south coast. However, while living and painting in India for a 12-month period in 2008/9, and inspired by the colours, culture and masses of people around him, Frank experimented with figure studies and has continued to develop figure paintings which have become an important part of his studio practice.
“My work tends to evolve out of long and deliberate observations of the world around me. I’m drawn to investigate situations that suggest a sense of mystery, isolation and solitude. I respond mainly to what I see and the feelings it evokes and if I’m happy with any work I produce then hopefully it can speak for itself”
Frank lives in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney.
