About the work
The works of abstract contemporary painter, Danielle Frankenthal, are inspired by the multifaceted qualities of light and the way in which those qualities are perceived. Working with materials such as Acrylite and color-
changing phosphorescent paint, Frankenthal explores refraction and reflection, and the way in which perspectives can change depending on line of sight or time of day.
Infused with rich color palettes, Frankenthal’s paintings are luminous and stunning to behold. When considering a print edition for the first time, it was this commitment to color saturation that led Frankenthal to the silkscreen
print studio of Gary Lichtenstein.
We are pleased to announce the upcoming release of Once in a Blue Moon, a silkscreen print edition in 25 colors on 2ply Rising Museum Board which will be unveiled in the Spring of 2019. The triptych required over 60 screens and has been produced as an edition of 25. The triptychs are available now at the opening price of $8,000. When the edition is presented formally within the market place, the price will be increased to $12,000.
Danielle Frankenthal’s paintings have been exhibited widely throughout her illustrious career and are included in the collections of, among others, The Museum of Fine Arts Houston, TX, The McNay Art Museum, TX and the Columbus Museum of Art, GA. Public corporate collections include Sloan Kettering, Norwegian Cruise Lines and MANA Contemporary Art Collection.
