2014 Participating Artist
Born and raised in the New York, Frank Gennaro attended Pratt Institute School of Art, Design and Engineering. He became involved with photography over 30 years ago. Since retired and settling in Cave Creek, Frank has been working more seriously with digital and mixed-medium.
All of his work is digitally processed by using various techniques. Some of the techniques he developed emulate painting. Frank does this using Corel Painter with various Bristle, Fan, Sargent and other brush's. Other techniques emulate pencil drawing, pastel and watercolor.
After working with the original image as a digital pallet, he creates finished pieces on canvas, watercolor paper and other mediums using acrylics applied by hand and pigmented inks applied with a Canon Image Prograph 8300 Plotter. Frank stretches his own canvas and matt and even frames most of the images. This allows him total control of the creative process beginning with capturing an image to a full rendering on canvas or fine art papers.
