Frank Arnold Gallery
Abstract figures come to life in Frank Arnold‘s paintings and sculptures, which he puts on display in his unique gallery, which doubles as his home, and studio in San Jose del Cabo. His artworks consist mainly of oil paintings and cast bronze sculptures, and hold a haunting quality that seems both deeply personal, and distant.
