Lazarides Rathbone is pleased to present Macrocosm, a solo exhibition from the Icelandic conceptual artist and abstract painter Katrin Fridriks. The exhibition will display a brand new body of work alongside the 2014 installation Perception of the Stendhal Syndrome – Gene&Ethics Master Prism.

 

In her newest works, Katrin Fridriks develops a method that involves a precise, single splash that is both bodily and conceptual in action. Contrastingly, in the installation, the canvas is worked on laboriously, with the artist applying layers of black and white paint that transform into what appears to be an explosion. The role of the magnifying glass is to enhance the intensity of the experience of being overwhelmed by the artwork, evoking a phenomenon that is called "beauty nausea".

 

The painting method mastered by Katrin Fridriks has the potential to trigger nature-like processes that give her canvases a unique, almost fractal-like depth. Fridriks' paintings unfold in front of our eyes to reveal new perspectives the closer we look. The spatial arrangement of this show invites viewers to participate, to adopt various viewpoints, and to realize micro and macro perspectives through the magnifying glass.

During the opening the artist will sign copies of her first monograph, published by Skira.
