While Per Morten Abrahamsen’s ”Magnified” is on display in the main gallery, a series of new works by Swiss painter Frank Fisher will be on view in the Hans Alf Gallery project room.
As always, Fischer bases his works on that of an existing artist: The color scheme of each individual painting is deciphered and reproduced in Fischer’s onerous drip-painting technique, so that the finished work becomes a representation of the original. Fischer has done this with artists such as Cy Twombly, Ferdinand Hodler and Emil Nolde – and with great success.
This time, Fischer explores British painter Henry Hudson’s “Sun City Tanning”-series from 2016. The result is a deep and quite different palette. It's not like anything we’re used to seeing from the hand of Fischer.
