Frank Hyder is a Northern Liberties painter and woodcut artist, with a Masters in Fine Art. He is based in Miami, but has traveled widely in South America and Mexico - claiming the Southern exposure suits him. However, there was a single life-changing experience that made all the difference for this venturesome artist. Hyder spent one year living and painting in the Venezuelan rain forest.
Hyder's art seeks to engage the viewer in a sensory and visual dialogue. Nature and the dynamics of light are his subjects. He desires to create a metaphysical reality of intense light and shade where forms appear and dissolve, to dream with eyes open, to feel without touching and to feel touched by the very experience of seeing the painting.
