Frank Kent is fascinated by the phenomenological dimensions of human experience and in particular the ways in which visual experience is integrated and inseperable from touch. The intelligence and humour at work is unafraid of what might be slight: he experiments with both a form of literalism and artifice embracing the synergy between a material and the hand that crafts. Frank graduated from the Royal Academy Schools in 2016. recent exhibitions include. ’So he pulled the right levers and you did the asking’ ArtLink, Hull 2017. ‘Unplanned’ at Stephen Lawrence Gallery, Greenwich university 2017. ‘New Work’ a solo show at Fold Gallery, London 2017 and ‘Energy is Eternal Delight’ a commission for Richard Booths Bookshop during Hay Literary Festival 2017.
