Olsen Irwin artist Jan Frank’s work is currently on show at Nahmad Contemporary in New York. Running from 25 June to 26 July 2014, the exhibition includes exhibited thirty-two ink drawings by Frank, encircling a single sculpture by John Chamberlain.
“John and I had a relationship for almost 25 years, always with the idea of showing together. Upon viewing his last show at Gagosian Gallery, NYC (2011). I was prompted to title and dedicate to him a large series of drawings I was about to embark on, positioning me to twist the lines to compress a form akin to the totem. In the “Crush” series for John Chamberlain, I found the sculptures produced for John’s last show so elegantly monumental, that homage to his work felt so honorable, and this reflection injected a sculptural glamour into my drawings; it gave me a new step.” – Jan Frank
