is a local Chicago artist
whose contemporary style has won a wide audience at home and around the country. Collaborating with Loren Friedman of Friedman Fine Art, Mr. Frohman recently placed a large 2 panel work in the lobby of the flagship Hyatt Regency Hotel
, 151 E. Upper Wacker Drive Chicago, IL.
The Hyatt commission called, “BORN IN CHICAGO” is drawn from Mr. Frohman’s earlier series ABSTRACT NARRATIVES (2007-2011). In that series, sequential panels were paired in groups of 2 or 4 to suggest frames of a film. The idea was that each panel carried elements of the story that come fully to life when sequenced with the other panels in the piece.
Doug Frohman is a prolific contemporary Chicago artist working in oil on canvas.
Another piece from the series, PANDORA follows the ABSTRACT NARRATIVE formula where bold colored passages swirl and interpenetrate each other forming a narrative line that supports the “story” found in each panel, but becomes much richer when sequenced across all four panels. These pieces are all painted with a workman’s cement trowel and layered extensively to achieve the final result. Mr. Frohman has exhibited most recently in the lobby of Chicago’s iconic Prudential Building and is scheduled for a solo exhibit in New York’s Chelsea art district
at Kips Gallery, NY.
