Tamar Frank

Tamar Frank’s key media is coloured lights.  In her recent piece ‘A thin line between space and matter’, she used phosphorescent threads to highlight detail created.  The phosphorescent threads absorb light energy that is emitted slowly.  This creates a colourful architectural form both delicate and intricate.  The inspiration for this piece came from the shapes and spaces created by the interior of the exhibiting building. I find this architectural detail is mirrored by the medium, which offers an intensity of colour, obtained from light energy, which transcends with the darkness.   This same delicacy of form has been created in Modernist works by the constructivist Naum Gabo.
