Artist Frank Lara, who graduated from the Altos de Chavón School of Art and Design in 2003, will present a new solo exhibition named “In Treatment” from Thursday November 13th until December 12th in the Altos de Chavón Gallery in Santo Domingo.
Frank Lara’s creations in this art exhibit “In Treatment” shows the artist’s connection and harmony with nature, created using bougainvillea flowers as well as tobacco leaves. The quality, originality and sheer beauty of Frank Lara’s artworks have received numerous compliments from renowned art curators.
Stephen Kaplan, Dean of the Altos de Chavón School of Art and Design, described Frank Lara as “A natural, organic talent. He is in harmony with his work, petal and leaf mosaics that are at once delicate and strong.”
Meanwhile the curator Aurora Martinez expressed, “the solution posed by the artist seeks to promote reconnection with nature, to understand the logic of origin derived from the encounter of the being with the essence… natural antidote to all evil”.
