Join the team as they discuss Frank Nowlan: Man of the series, an exhibition currently on display at the WPCC. Frank Nowlan came to art relatively late in life, when he retired after 40 years of teaching. But art was something of which he always dreamed. Frank called himself a “Sunday painter” and friends would drop in at his house and comment on the ‘stick men’ in his paintings. Throughout the years, Nowlan’s work has developed, becoming enriched with multi-layered concepts, political themes and hidden meanings.

Marynowsky works in a number of artistic mediums including performance, video, robotic, immersive or interactive installation. In this interactive work he explores the human-like performance of robots who mimic human characteristics without ever achieving humanity. Marynowsky animates his robots with humour, describing The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeois Robot 2 as the ‘decadent disco diva of doom.’
