Statement

Billy Gerard Frank is a multi-disciplinary artist and filmmaker, whose work draws upon the personal, political and social history in an attempt to create counter narratives that recognize suppressed histories, communities, and identities. By contesting the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, his works references theory as well as  the post-modern and the left-wing democratic movement as a form of resistance against the logic of a capitalist market system and power.

Frank  was born on the island of Grenada in the West Indies and began writing as a teenager  for local newspapers before moving to London where he began to paint and explore experimental video art.  He moved to New York City and continued studying fine art at the National Academy Museum and School of Fine Arts and the Art Students League of New York. His collected, altered and own mix media art works has been exhibited in group and solo shows in New York, London and the Caribbean and is in several private collections and institutions, including The National Academy  Museum and School of Fine Arts. Mr. Frank was a recent writing and visual art fellow at Camac - Centre D'Art in Paris, sponsored by the Tenot Foundation in France. 

Since 2005, after studying filmmaking and media arts at The New School University, Frank has worked as a director, producer, and production designer, in both narrative and documentary films. His narrative short film,  Absence Of Love, which he wrote and directed, was shown in several international film festivals, including the Palm Springs International Short Film Festival. The Yach Polish Music Video Awards in the category of Production Design nominated him in 2014 for Warner Music Group artist, Mary Komasa. He is also developing a narrative feature film, Cantos of Another Country  that weaves together multiple fragmentary tales, set against the backdrop of the 2005 civil unrests in France. 

Billy Gerard Frank currently lives and works in New York.
