We look forward to welcoming you to booth 6 at Market Art Fair at Liljevalchs Konsthall, Stockholm, which this year is dedicated to a solo presentation of new paintings and sculpture by Mark Frygell.
Mark Frygell’s practice revolves around the collective consciousness and how it manifests itself and merges into different kinds of images in our culture. He repeatedly manipulates and reworks gestures, references and materials, inspired by different methodologies of painting. Influenced by popular culture, art history and folk art he reorganizes motives, shapes and compositions to construct a familiar but yet alien expression.
Beginning as an exploration in tonality and texture in the fall of 2020, the works at Market Art Fair came to be inspired by preindustrial religious art and mainstream cultural articulations of the fantastic. References from such diverse areas as Patterned Persian miniatures, Sword and Sorcery literature, embellishments on Swedish medieval stone fonts and plastic figurines of the artist's childhood, merge in his acrylic plaster sculptures and oil paintings. Although possible to view as tales from a realm outside our physical reality, Frygell’s own interests is closer to the fantastic and its aesthetic as such.
Mark Frygell (b. 1985 in Umeå, lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden) has studied at The Academy of Fine Art in Umeå and Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Vienna, Austria. His work has been shown in and outside Sweden, among others Moderna Museet (Stockholm), Västerbottens Museum (Umeå), Andréhn-Schiptjenko (Stockholm), ZKU (Berlin), Sawaman Gallery (Kochi City), NTK (Prague), Salon 8 (Hamburg), Trollhättans Konsthall (Trollhättan), Galleri Thomassen (Gothenburg) and recently Konsthall Sliperiet (Karlstad).
