Frank Chiodo is a painter whose work 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.
Frank has a BA in Psychology and Studio Art from Wake Forest University. He has studied at the Art Students League with Kikuo Saito, Frank O’Cain and currently Peter Reginato where he is a Studio Monitor. He has participated shows in Connecticut, New York, Portland, Los Angeles, and Texas. Frank currently lives and works in New York.
