Frank Bramblett, Awning
With his exhibitions in New York in the 1970s, Bramblett participated in what is now called process art. In this type of art that emerged in the 1960s and 1970s, evidence of the physical process of making a work of art is the dominant element of the work. The artist emphasizes the act of creation, rather than trying to create a particular kind of appearance or depict a subject. Process art, like Bramblett’s, exhibits the physical, bodily reality of working in the studio. Bramblett embraces accidental gestures and elements of chance in his work. The results are playfully unorthodox and mysterious.
