There is no photography which can show the true quality of a sculpture and even the best print will never equal the texture and vivid colour of a painting, especially if it has large dimension.
This is particularly true for the works of Katrin Fridriks, who combines and whirl together the colours like no one. Even the basic combination of black and white of her new series New Wave & Gravity bring the spectator in another dimension, with an incredible and violent synergy.
It may reminds Jackson Pollock but this is the opposite of action painting as her pictorial coat is so much more detailed and crafted : absolutely perfect and highly impressive.
Art 16 is closed now but you can go to see her solo exhibition ‘Macrocosm’ at the Lazarides Gallery until the 9th June!
