As part of the Lazarides Gallery 10th Anniversary celebrations, Lazarides Editions studio just released Katrin Fridriks‘ latest print Noble Awakening.

To close a successful year, Katrin Fridriks is about to open a new solo with Circle Culture Gallery at their space in Hamburg on November 6th. From the preview photos and info we just received from the Icelandic artist’s worshop, New Wave looks like a coherent show of exclusively square shaped canvases focused on the law of gravity. These new works continue her Riding Awareness series in which paint is captured on the surface of her canvases while flowing and forming spontaneous and unplanned shapes. Seemingly calmer and […]
