VIENNA/SANTA FE Paintings from 2003 to the present
September 12, 2014
Frank Ettenberg works spontaneously, allowing images and moods to arise through the act of painting, and for many years he has remained true to this automatic style.
“In elementary school, I used to get into trouble because I had problems with my ‘self control’. I recall how I felt : I had strong feelings and pictures coming up from nowhere and it was natural to draw fantastic things and to make noises while I drew. It’s still basically the same story now that I’m 69 yrs old. I still have lots of ideas and love to go exploring and making noises in the realm of art, whether I’m storytelling or not.”
