Frankie Macaulay is a visual artist and photographer based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Influenced by nature and urban environments, the artist often uses fragments of reality to create composite images of fiction.
Macaulay graduated from NSCAD University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and Major in Photography. As a student, Macaulay participated in exhibitions at the Anna Leonowens Gallery, including a solo show, Urban Paper, and curating a group show, The Sum of a Photograph. Macaulay was awarded scholarships, including the Reznick Student Creativity Award, which generously funded Tree Versus, an outdoor multi-site public installation located at Sir Sandford Fleming Park in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Exhibiting independently from the university, Macaulay has shown work at Nocturne: Art at Night, Chives Window Space, Smallest Halifax Art Gallery, Corridor Gallery and Argyle Fine Art. The artist has been featured in The Coast’s New Art 2016 edition and The Halifax Metro for Nocturne: Art at Night 2015 and ghosts, a group show at the Anna Leonowens Gallery.
Macaulay is represented by Pavia Gallery and has work on display at two of their locations (Herring Cove and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia).
