Bernard Frize

Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

Bernard Frize was born in France in 1949. He is an unconventional painter, and he uses different objects to paint with, and his work is very industrial based. Bernard Frize explains that his paintings are more about the process than the actual paintings themselves.
 
« I need to do the mundane tasks, the stretching of the canvas,
washing the brushes. »

Bernard Frize
Bernard Frize often gets others to help him with his paintings. In one recent piece involved a team of Frize's assistants moving their linked brushes across a wet white ground.

Bernard Frize


Frize's work is truly different and original, something that no one else seemed interested in which was the act of painting itself. Each of Bernard Frize's painting is elaborate and made with a sort of choreographed performance for each piece, involving his direction and his assistance and other painters, and odd tools Read More

What is Gestural?

What is Gestural?

Gestural is a term which describes painting with freely sweeping brush strokes. The main goal of gestural art was to allow the artist to physically portray emotional impulses. Viewers were thought to understand inner artistic thoughts revealed through the varied, yet expressive paint marks.
