JULY 9 – AUGUST 29, 2020
DOLBY CHADWICK GALLERY, SAN FRANCISCO
TIME SHADOW VIDEO 2020
‘Time Shadow’ is an exhibition of recent work by Bernadette Jiyong Frank. Her highly layered compositions are notable for their striking geometric abstraction, effecting a multidimensionality that is both solid and ethereal. Though they exhibit strong formal parallels to natural phenomena, her paintings also move beyond the visual realm to one that can only be experienced with eyes closed.
Inside the studio 2020
In this video, Bernadette Jiyong Frank takes us into her studio where she works on new pieces for her July/August 2020 solo exhibition, “Time Shadow.” Watch as she glazes, sands and builds hundreds of layers of paint onto the surface of her panels. The result is striking geometric abstractions that are both solid and ethereal.

CULTURAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM
US Ambassador to Bahrain, Justin Siberell, a native Californian from Hillsborough, graciously invited me to participate in the Cultural Exchange Program through the Art in Embassies. My husband, Goetz, who is an architect, was also invited to give a lecture on sustainability in architecture in the US.
Art in Embassies has provided us with an incredible opportunity to connect and exchange with Bahrainis through art: I held 5 workshops where I taught water color to high school and university art students as well as to emerging artists. The Embassy also partnered with Bait Al Salmaniya Cultural Center to exhibit my recent oil paintings for a month. These paintings were also showcased at the Ambassador’s home for a warm welcoming reception with Bahraini artists, educators and business representatives.
