Marking the artist’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery, Frank Schwaiger presents a new exhibition of recent paintings and sculptures titled “Meditations,” at the Bruno David Projects - Grove location.
he “Meditations” exhibition includes works made in the last 3 years in St. Louis. In his artist’ statement, Frank Schwaiger writes “We make things with our hands - that unique ability makes us ‘human’, and even more amazingly, earns us an awareness of our spirit. All art is riven with this quest for, ‘who we are’. The root of my iconography can be traced back, like Paul Klee's, to 17th century Bavarian folk art and the making of things with the hand. That is who I am.”
Frank Schwaiger’s work has been widely exhibited. He is a graduate of the Washington University in St. Louis, School of Architecture (Now the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts), and received his Master from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, where he worked with Buckminster Fuller. In conjunction with the exhibition, Bruno David Gallery Publications published an exhibition catalogue of the artist’s work with an exhibition history and bibliography.
