Frank Webster’s paintings frequently depict post-industrial landscapes while drawing on the aesthetic traditions of minimalism and realism. Grounded in the real, Webster's paintings nonetheless abstract the ordinary making the everyday world transcendent and strange while imbuing it with an ethereal and melancholy beauty. The sharp juxtaposition of technology and romanticism in Webster's work is evocative of our current age and environment.
