HandWork, a series of original hand-built ceramic sculptures by SandyFrank, focuses on figurative work with hand gestures as the motif to depict the hidden energies of the human psyche. Using the quiet communication of the hands in a non-judgmental and non-cultural way, Frank conveys a universal and direct expression that can be interpreted on many levels. Whether it is holding on, or letting go, the work anatomically breathes and feels alive.
SandyFrank has been a practicing artist for over 30 years. She has worked and shown nationally and internationally. Recently she has developed a body of work called HandWork which showed as a solo show at the Sonoma Academy Art Gallery, with some pieces at Openings NYC and also in “Art as Messenger” at the CATO Institute in Washington DC. Frank holds a BA from The Academy of Art in Illustration and a BFA from the University of San Francisco. She has taken workshops from master sculptors including Manuel Neri, and Peter Rubino and has been a part of the San Francisco Sculpture Co-Op and The Nicasio Sculpture Group in Marin. She has taught art to all ages throughout her career.
