Cuadros Negros 06107, 2011

Fred Friedrich displays in his work a characteristic bold, abstract style which immediately captures the attention, and which owes some of its tremendous power to the artist’s experience as an architect. His powerful paintings bear the traces of acrylic paints pooling and running off the canvas in thick streaks, the result of his controlled but emphatic movements as he works, and very thin, delicate lines that evoke illustration. By allowing his works to emerge from a kind of controlled randomness, Friedrich achieves an immensely effective layering effect that at times approaches figuration. Faces and silhouettes begin to emerge as if from Rorschach test inkblots, something they do overtly in his more representational sculptures.

What is perhaps most impressive is Friedrich’s ability to wrest from this very fluid process images that seem so carefully and impressively composed. From the interplay of jet-black tones against bright hues in compounding shades, to the increasingly fine rivulets of paint stretched across his canvases, there is both incredible subtlety and aesthetic might to each piece, reflecting his empathetic concern for individuals and his determination to promote creativity in the world.

About the Exhibition:
Two excellent collective exhibitions will be gracing the walls of Agora Gallery this spring, in addition to a remarkable solo exhibition featuring the works of Austrian artist Fred Friedrich. Elements of Abstraction presents art with the ability to induce a shift in perspective, allowing the viewer to reach new conclusions about what they see and experience that vision in different ways. Portals of Perception displays works which seem to breathe with creative energy and inspiration, and a passionate joy in the world and its complexities which they pass, in turn, to those who see them. In Fin de Ciel: Fred Friedrich / a Solo Exhibition the audience is introduced to the tremendously powerful artwork of a man who is constantly engaged in exploring the balance between the figurative and the abstract, the fluid and the definite. The result is a mesmerizing collection of works which speak across barriers of culture, place or time to reach fundamental elements of existence. The exhibitions will begin on March 30, 2012 and will run until April 19, 2012. The opening reception will take place on April 5, 2012. Entrance is free and all art enthusiasts are warmly encouraged to attend and meet the artists responsible for these enthralling creations.
