* 1939 in Vienna (AT)
"The things you think, you can feel. The things you feel, you also think." - Thoughts like this inspire Heinz Frank's paintings and objects. A skilled architect, who also designs furniture, claiming he never found the "true material" for himself. The artist uses paint, wood, metal, but his essential materials are his thoughts and impressions, which he writes down and then manufactures into double-sided paintings or for instance his legendary "Affenkäfig" from the 1970s.
