Frank FISCHER



Born in Zurich Switzerland in 1974.
Lives and works in London.


Les laques sur aluminium de Frank Fischer naissent d’un processus méticuleux, développé au cours de nombreuses années d’expérimentation, et qui apparaît trompeusement simple. Face à ces surfaces lisses et cliniquement ordonnées, seules les petites gouttes séchées à la base du tableau, semblables à des stalactites, témoignent du processus de création. Chaque ligne verticale constitue une nuance qui forme un spectre coloré. Ce spectre abstrait, tel un code-barres est une interprétation de chef d’œuvres de l’histoire de l’art de différentes époques (de Pierre Bonnard à Takashi Murakami en passant par Peter Doig). Il est le reflet d’une persistance chromatique qu’ont laissées ces œuvres bien connues dans la mémoire de l’artiste.
