Love Aquatic is an art exhibition featuring the painting, drawing and photography by Alison Frank. It is the merger of her work as a visual artist and as a professional mermaid. Her paintings in this collection are inspired by the beauty experienced and captured through her freediving as a mermaid. The underwater world is a tranquil escape where time and daily pressures seem to dissolve. Water and the gravity free environment have many therapeutic healing benefits from fitness to pain relief. This solstice has been one component, for her, in managing a diagnosis with Multiple Sclerosis in a holistic approach. To this underwater world, she adds her surreal and playful mix of characters. Children gravitate to water and the joy of swimming. As adults, we often lose our affinity for this magical place. She visually shares the ephemeral beauty of the way water reflects light in a way we can never experience above the surface. Through this exhibition, she hopes to connect to viewers in a way that might inspire them to revisit the water and experience it’s many benefits.
