Frank Hobbs

Frank Hobbs is a Virginia painter whose compositions are constructed out of the formal interplays between the man-made and the natural. Hobbs says of his work, "my work as a painter is simply about being somewhere and paying attention... (the) aim is to capture, not the subject per se, but the energy of the struggle to see and to render the visual particulars of the subject. In this way, even the false starts, and the many inevitable adjustments and revisions become necessary, meaningful and beautiful."
