Elisabeth Frieberg: "Pink Blue Gold Indian Ocean" at Andréhn-Schiptjenko, Paris

Mousse Magazine, November 30, 2021

The exhibition takes its title from its largest painting, a result of numerous influences. The artist has used dark browns and greens from the landscape surrounding Taos, New Mexico, that Frieberg visited in the footsteps of Agnes Martin, one of her most important influences in painting, and combined these with a bright palette from the Maldives — the colours of the landscape and the movement of fish observed when snorkelling enter the painting through swirling brush strokes.Characteristic of Frieberg’s work, seemingly unrelated influences or narratives coexist in a cohesive whole.
