Pia Fries: Randmeer

Caleb De Jong reviews the exhibition Pia Fries: Randmeer at CRG Gallery, New York, on view through April 28, 2012.

De Jong writes that "Fries visually embeds through her silkscreen technique the 16th century Mannerist prints of Hendrick Goltzius and the Baroque printmaker Stefano della Bella. Mechanically reproduced versions of etched lines interact with viscous paint marks that make Fries paintings an assemblage of the handmade and the reproduced, the historical consciousness and the contemporary gesture. Profusely layered, Fries' paintings fashions a painting mark that is the equivalent to the Baroque texture of an intaglio print."
