Frances Stark

April 26 – June 22, 2008

Frances Stark’s work is characterized by her exploration of the manifold interrelations between art and literature and image and text. Her work on and with script encompasses both art and writing. She often investigates the process of artistic production and the creative act itself. Her finely assembled collages are closely meshed works of various found and invented characters, snippets of text and graphic elements, literary quotations and autobiographical references.


Frances Stark, born in Newport Beach, California, in 1967, lives and works in Los Angeles.
