Pia Fries: Merian’s Surinam

Text by Christine Buci-Glucksmann, Camille Morineau.

For the 14 diptychs that comprise the Merian's Surinam series, Swiss painter Pia Fries (born 1955) uses reproductions by the painter and botanical illustrator Maria Sybilla Merian (1647–1717). Merian's images of plants, flowers, animals and insects are elaborated upon with oil paint, from thin to thick impasto, and with varying degrees of obscuration, to establish an open and playful dialogue between the two women.

Pia Fries: Merian’s Surinam
From Walther König

Pia Fries: Merian’s Surinam

Pia Fries (born 1955) is a Swiss-born painter, now living in Düsseldorf, Germany. A former student of Gerhard Richter, she shares her mentor's fondness for visceral paint effects, blending and smearing colors in horizontal gestures, but the similarity ends there: if Richter's paint manoeuvres conjure present-day preoccupations with blur and speed, Fries seems to use paint as a way to move across pictorial space, of finding out where to go--not so much "taking a line for a walk" (in Klee's phrase) as taking a splodge for a walk. continue to blog
