Art International Istanbul 25/09/2014

For her first participation at Art Istanbul International starting next week, the abstract painter Katrin Fridriks will present her latest series of works on two different spaces : Circle Culture gallery (booth E2) and Helene Bailly gallery (booth A18).

Two galleries, two different bodies of works showing the unique & recognizable gesture of the artist through her paintings and other acrylics on paper.

On booth E2, in the vein of the curatorial direction of her Berlin-based gallery, square formats will be shown, 100x100cm for her acrylics on canvas and 70x70cm for the works on poly gravure paper. Especially for the fair, and as a preparation of her upcoming solo show at Circle Culture late november 2014, Katrin Fridriks decided to push further her play with the 3D and the thickness of the canvas, presenting for the first time her impressive 20cm thickness canvas titled "Dreamliner n4".
Making her series evolve, and as a reminder of the exhibition at Helene Bailly gallery displaying the first "Lollipop » composition in 2012, Katrin Fridriks and her gallery have chosen for ArtInternational Istanbul to present round-shape paintings. With a constant support following Fridriks aesthetic evolution such as through the "Lollipop" series, Helene Bailly gallery will exhibit on booth A18 a specifically made composition -composed of four 30cm diameter canvases with their plexi stick and one D110cm- alongside works on reflective paper.
