‘So Far: The Art of Dale Frank 1980–2005 traces a trajectory in the work of world–renowned Australian artist Dale Frank. The book considers his early performances of the 1970s and early 1980s and the themes that emerged from the mid-1990s onward, culminating with a discussion of his most recent paintings. This extraordinarily beautiful book includes over 430 full-page plates and photographs spanning from the iconic varnish paintings and monochromes to large-scale drawings, Pop assemblages, installations, and performance works, giving a sense of Frank’s varied and dynamic practice.

So Far is a magnificent career retrospective monograph, notable for its high production values and the new light it sheds on a major Australian artist.’ – the publisher
