The World is Wonderful is a solo exhibition of the latest series of paintings by the French artist Bernard Frize, which offers an unexpected bridge between these two metaphorical shores, mesmerizingly evoking both pictorially and physically that is an evocation of destruction.
The paintings presented are neither narrative nor fragmentary, but owe their creation largely to a sanctioned depravity. Unruly paint is allowed to bleed over the artist's own brushstrokes, complicating systematic brushstrokes with smudges, bands and stains, whose amorphous hazy forms suggest various celestial bodies. This new series of paintings manage to appear both alive and dying at the same time, reflecting its complex and evolving relationship with painting, the act of painting, and what it means to be a painter.
