"I am always less interested in the technical process of producing a picture than in the relationship between the completed picture and the origins of its coming into being. Today, the picture itself is more important to me." Bernard Frize, excerpted from Bernard Frize: And How and Where and Who.
Published by Hatje Cantz. Edited by Markus Heinzelmann.
The serial abstract canvases of French artist Bernard Frize (born 1949) are generated by constraints--Frize describes his process as "inventing a little mechanism--a motor that runs all by itself, that no longer has any need of me." The results, surprisingly fluid and light in touch, are surveyed in this new monograph.
