ABOUT THE JUROR
Frank Wimberley, Internationally Renowned Artist of the East End
Juror for Diversity, 2013
For over 40 years Frank Wimberley has been regarded as one of the preeminent artists on the East End. In the tradition of those wildly creative abstract expressionists who made this tip of Long Island famous as the birthplace of so much bold and courageous non-representative painting, Wimberley shows us again and again that color and composition and texture and style can not only be arrestingly beautiful, but in skillful hands can even convey nuanced emotion.
Frank Wimberley Statement: "It took me sometime to truly consider myself a painter in what you might consider the traditional sense. Over the years it has been a blessing to see De Kooning, Tapies, and Voulkos tear themselves away from the past using tools and materials in a different manner to achieve singular expressions. To move forward in my work I now look back at the experiments I used some time ago. I had to learn to use brushes, but also created tools from all kinds of contraptions to see the differences it made in my sculptures and paintings."
