Brooke Frank

Brooke FrankBrooke Frank is an emerging artist living and working in South Florida. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with her BFA in painting from Florida Atlantic University, and spent most of her undergraduate degree as a student assistant at the Jaffe Center for Book Arts. This spring, in addition to her residency, she is working professionally in technical theatre, specializing in scenic artistry and prop making.

The work she’ll be completing at the Jaffe Center revolves around the manipulation of pages from National Geographic magazines, notorious for their simplification of images and ideas to their most palatable details. The objective is to revive, retain, and record only that which is vital to the convection of genuine content.

Her work mimics the processes of natural forces like erosion, decay, and sublimation as they occur in seemingly controlled environments, in order to substantiate abstract and poetic thinking. Ultimately, every work seeks to interpret its catalysts––however banal, morbid, or cynical––as things to live for and through.
