DESCRIPTION

Portraits of the Iconic and the Mundane comprises Kim Frohsin's most recent paintings, exploring instantly recognizable numbers, symbols, and commercial packaging for branded products. Typically numbers express quantity, but in these paintings they revert to forms abounding with layers of color, multiple linear elements, and purposeful splatters. The work expands on the artist's thesis that the detritus of everyday life can be a source for telling portraiture.
