MICHAEL FRIESKE


 

Artist Statement

 

My works are initially complex, raw experimental arrangements - colorful and structural excursions into the abstract, entirely dedicated to diffusion, arbitrariness and the unconscious. Blurriness, fractures, superimpositions, distortions and irritations arise. These go into exchange and confrontation with compositional demands - lines, cracks, often circular, open and closed systems, figurative approaches, intense colour accents - precise final punches. The urge for consistency and control is finally combined with the non-binding, the numerous layers, shallows and devastations. The mostly large-format, abstract acrylic paintings are an invitation to relate to the paradoxes, struggles, imprecations and pardons of our world and life.
