Bernard Frize

b. 1954, France

Bernard Frize is a French abstract painter who lives and works in France and Germany. He was born in Saint-Mandé, France in 1949 and studied at the École des beaux-Arts in Montpellier National Art School. Frize’s works have been exhibited in S.M.A.K Museum, Belgium and Gemeente Museum Den Haag, Netherlands in 2002. In addition, he participated in the Sydney Biennale 1998 and the Venice Biennale 2005.

His paintings use line in abstractions that allow surprising complexity in terms of colour, facture, width and intersection. They stretch the definition of line. Since the end of the seventies, when painting was according to many people as good as dead, frize was working consistently on a body of work that seemed to reduce painting to its most pure and trivial essence: the application of colour and of paint on a support. Although recognition of his work was a long time coming, he succeeded in giving painting a new impulse and influencing a whole generation of painters.
