Katrin Fridriks "Flying Awareness" @ Lazarides, London

June 30, 2014

Icelandic abstract painter Katrin Fridriks returns to Lazarides Rathbone this summer with her first London solo exhibition, Flying Awareness. Inspired by the artist's remote native land and a continuation of her experimental use of color and liquid painterly movement, the new body of work follows Fridriks acclaimed participation in Lazarides' 2013 group shows, BRUTAL and Fresh Paint.

Fridriks' fiercely expressive multi-layered canvases take on a three-dimensional perspective, encouraging the viewer to seek out their own perception of the wildly suggestive works. Exploring both the micro and macro elements of the new heavily textural pieces, Fridriks has developed the meticulous production and conception of her spirited pictorial abstractions.

The new body of evocative work strives to create distance from the paintings themselves and instead highlight the audience's own perception and imagination. Playing across a variety of media and fine-tuned technical execution, Fridriks explores the dynamics and emotional boundaries between herself and the viewing public.
