GALERIE FRANK FLUEGEL will show Alex Katz Coca Cola Girls during June and Summer 2019.

RED—a long-drawn-out, intense red, monochrome through and through. This saturated, warm red unfolds its very own effect, a lasting presence. Hear Coca‑Cola, and you see red. This red is dominant, powerful, melodic, and permeated by an infinite number of pigments that weave an impenetrable dense network of surfaces that will allow nothing less than pure color timbre. In its entire extent, this becomes the resonance chamber for the white typography of the double word Coca-Cola. The new series Coca-Cola Girl by Alex Katz, the master of the game between figuration and abstraction, also manages with this equally simple color chord. It combines much of what makes up Alex Katz’s art: his unpretentious coolness and lasciviousness, a few suggestive narrative elements that are only very loosely related in individual sequences. All this conjures the fascination and joy of summer and carefreeness. Subtly, he processes ideas and elements that tie in with the advertising strategies of the major global brand, but without actually quoting them. In a sequence of eleven motifs, he creates his own style of narrative, which he recites with his individual imagery that is as striking, illustrative, and subtle as it is unapproachable.

FRANK FLUEGEL GALLERY with spaces in Nuernberg/Germany and Kitzbuehel/Austria is focused on original artwork of Pop Art and Contemporary Art like Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, Keith Haring, Mr. Brainwash, XOOOOX, Roy Lichtenstein, Julian Opie, James Rosenquist, Alex Katz or Mel Ramos. The Gallery also trades works by Pablo Picasso, KAWS, Gerhard Richter or Basquiat.
Changing solo shows at the gallery spaces in central Nuernberg and Kitzbuehel expose different positions of our gallery program. Participating at international art fairs completes our gallery task.
