Great find by Sven and the guys at AM. I'm always a sucker for big colorful pieces especially the long slender ones in the pic below. Interesting background according to Wiki. Has she ever shown in the U.S.? Price range?
dove in heads first and came out with a black crayon thanks to Ed. This was my first experience dealing with Future Tense and after reviewing some of selected works together, Ed gave me some nice insight about Katrin.
And yea sleepboy, that's a pretty sweet star. There are quite a few stars I really like and definitely may try bidding on them come November.

Katrin Fridriks, born 9 August 1974 in Reykjavík (Iceland), is a conceptual painter.
Having spent many years in several countries, on different continents gave her a certain open-mindedness and cultural wealth which can be felt on the canvas: a clever mix of the wilderness of her native Iceland, abstract expressionism, minimalism - spearhead of the Bauhaus -, a combination of calligraphic work, tribute to the expertise of the Far East, graffiti, a controlled and thorough pop culture colorimetric.
Her passion for architecture inspired her to create conceptual installations still using canvas and paint. Beyond her resolutely modern pictorial expression, Katrin Fridriks is continuing her research into matter and color with the avowed intent to place technique at the service of artistic expression.
Creating new perspectives, her work brings an innovative dimension to abstraction.

Does anyone know anything about the CircleCulture show featuring Fridriks that is advertised on the PicturesOnWalls home page? There's an image there that says "Circle Culture Gallery, London" and below, the text
Katrin Fridriks, Olivia Steele & Stefan Strumbel The Royal Academy of Arts London, England 12th October - 15th November
I can't find out anything about this via the Royal Academy web site, nor the Circle Culture Gallery site, nor Fridriks' site. I'm confused. Help!
