Mark Frygell – Paradise Fermented at Andréhn-Schiptjenko
May 2 – June 20, 2019
We are proud to present Mark Frygell’s first solo-exhibition at the gallery. The opening takes place on Thursday, May 2, 5-8 p.m.
Mark Frygell’s works depart from the history of painting, sub-cultural images and comic books. He repeatedly manipulates and reworks gestures, references and materials, inspired by different methodologies of painting. His interest lies in concepts such as caricature, comedy and biography in relation to painting, as well as to the painter.
His most recent works explore his own relationship to the figurative painting as a carrier of collective consciousness, moral symbol and identity creating object as well as a surface for playfulness.
In line with these interests, the reuse of forms, colours, compositions, themes and expressions of a certain painterly language form an important part of Mark Frygell’s method. Starting with quick drawings made directly on the pages in books that he reads, or on different found materials, he then refines and process the motives, shifting materials and formats before working with oil on canvas. Through these different stages, he explores the motives and finds new shapes and forms.
Mark Frygell was born 1985 in Umeå, Sweden and has studied at The Royal Academy, Umeå and Akademie der bildende Künste in Vienna, Austria. His work was recently shown in the Moderna Exhibition at Moderna Museet in Stockholm, 2018. His work will be shown in a solo-exhibition at Härnösands Konsthall, June 15- August 24, 2019.
