Dementia.

Rob Frankle is an illustrator and graphic designer. In both disciplines, his goal is to communicate issues with simplicity and psychological impact. He believes that the process of painting is a dialogue between external and internal reality. From childhood, he has always been fascinated with how marks on paper can often reach below the surface of experience and connect with viewers. In this painting, Frankle focuses on the common yet not fully understood condition we call "dementia." The main symptom of dementia is an acute decline in mental ability. With this, an upheaval of personal reality occurs. One's normal construct of time and place often dissolves. Dementia dramatically reveals to us the critical nature of brain function in defining our reality.

Frankle holds a B. F. A. degree from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art and resides in Brewster, New York.
