About Roland de Fries

 
 
  • Biography
    I paint (mainly), but I am also interested in photography, sculpture and film. The six works on display are photographs from a series of beautiful images, all six taken on a farm in Tuscany from the exact same angle with my 1961 Rolleiflex. I have been working on an array of different topics, but I notice that I keep coming back to certain themes and subject matters that seem to grab my attention most: Urbanity & Landscape, and a fascinating and often ecclectic clash of tradition and technology. My work is informed by mostly post-modern painters and conceptual artists, including Gerhard Richter, Martin Kippenberger, Elaine Sturtevant, Frank Stella, Cy Twombly, Andy Warhol, and Joseph Beuys, but also by early 20th-century masters like Max Beckmann, Pablo Picasso and Paul Cézanne.
