Installation

Frank Balve’s visual language is explicit. Its overall tone is dark, its articulation clear, and its effect disturbing. Balve designs his images with paint, he builds them of stone or paper, he stages them for the camera, and he encapsulates them in language. In site- specific installations - often of museum-scale - he combines his works, creating spaces of experience with which the viewer must engage both physically and mentally with all his/her senses.(...)
