Gudrun Mertes-Frady
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Greenpoint



ARTIST STATEMENT: As a timeless organizing principle, geometry is the underlying matrix or architecture of all my work. I am drawn to its symmetry and quasi-symmetry and the limitless potential to create my own world. 
 
 My work is about clarity and structure, pared down to essential forms. In my recent paintings, I use metallic pigments, like aluminum and graphite. I also use mica particles mixed with my colors to affect a kinetic quality of illusory motion depending from which angle the work is seen. 
 
 I’m very interested to explore physical fact and psychic affect of color and form with this process. I work toward the instant the painting has its own center, its own logic, physically and intellectually. Most of all I want my work to be about deceleration, in the spirit of the works by Olafur Eliasson and the Swiss architect Peter Zumthor, as a counter point to the ever accelerating whirl of our time, in which our lives seem trapped. There is one more thing of importance to me: I’m going blatantly for a sense of beauty.
