Natalie Frank’s paintings are peopled by inbetween figures, ill-defined by gender and sexuality, the every day and perverse fantasy, engaging the viewer as complicit voyeur. In Frank’s 2015 exhibition at The Drawing Center, NY, “Grimm’s Fairy Tales,” and in her accompanying publication Tales of the Brothers Grimm. Drawings by Natalie Frank, (Damiani) with essays by Linda Nochlin, Claire Gilman, Jack Zipes and Julie Taymor, Frank drew the unsanitized tales with a Feminist interpretation: emphasizing the roles of women. The exhibition traveled to the Blanton Museum of Art (UT Austin) and the Kentucky Art Museum. Her second collaboration with fairy tale scholar Jack Zipes is The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, (Princeton University Press) 2017. Frank has exhibited widely at Mitchell-Innes and Nash, NY; Rhona Hoffman Gallery, Chicago; ACME, LA; Exit Art, NY; Arndt&Partner, Berlin, Zurich; Istanbul74, TR; The Rose Art Museum, MA; The Bowdoin College Museum of Art, ME; The Granary (curated by Melva Bucksbaum), CT; London Museum of Design, UK; The National Academy Museum, NY; Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, PA; Montclair Art Museum, NJ; The Brooklyn Museum, NY. In 2003-4, Frank was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to study Edward Munch in Oslo, Norway, as a guest student at the National Academy of the Arts.
