Frank Chiodo is a painter whose work mainly focuses on organic abstraction. As color and gesture interact on the the canvas, the emerging raw forms begin to evoke memories and feelings to create a framework for ideation, challenging the viewer to explore their own creative interpretation. His medium of choice is acrylic paint as its quick-drying nature lends itself well to his fast-paced and multilayered process, which often results in many iterations before a painting becomes a finished work. Frank constantly seeks equilibrium, trusting intuition and embracing imperfections, allowing the piece to evolve until achieving a desired aesthetic and composition.
He has a BA in Psychology and Studio Art from Wake Forest University and currently studies at The Art Students League of New York. Frank has studied with instructors Kikuo Saito, Frank O’Cain, Peter Reginato (where he was a Studio Monitor), and Peter Bonner. He has participated shows in Connecticut, New York, Portland, Los Angeles, and Texas.
