Born in 1974 in Reykjavik (Iceland), Katrin Fridriks is an abstract conceptual painter, living and working in Luxembourg. She fuses the natural energies of her native Iceland with an explosive, however organic, abstract expressionism and Japanese calligraphy signs, filtered through installations and architectural compositions. Based on an endless exercise on matter and technique, Katrin Fridrikss recent works include perspective studies of her black-and-white series (Gene&Ethics and Stendhal Syndrome) and of the metallic series Riding Awareness. The progressive enlargement of her drippings producing unique zoom effects is like macro photography into her paintings. By creating these new perspectives, Katrin Fridrikss work brings an innovative dimension to abstraction.
