GOLDEN AWARENESS N1
silkscreen and inkjet edition print on paper, embossed, glazed, signed and numbered by the artist, unframed, 80 x 80 cm, 70 + 7 AP
Circle Culture presents the edition "Golden Awareness N1" by Icelandic born artist Katrin Fridriks.
The embossed and glazed silkscreen-inkjet print on paper of the size of 80 x 80 cm is an highly limited edition of 70 and was produced by London-based print studio Coriander in 2012. The print can be purchased for 990 € at Circle Culture Gallery only.
The "Awareness" paintings came from the disclosure of political affairs occurring at the time, as well as an aroused consciousness about Earth, Fridriks calls "mother nature", its power, its limits and the dangers caused by human activities. "Awareness" has been developed through a metallic dominance, just like our technology-based contemporary time, working with a new well-defined colorimetry "silver, gold, steel, cooper, aluminum" as backgrounds.
The second element brought by the series is the enlargement in size and shape of her drippings, heightening the movement of her abstract paintings. This technical work on matter and gesture has evolved constantly.
In 2011, the "Awareness" series was presented only through canvas in 100 x 100 cm but soon has been developed on other media giving birth among other to Fridriks first prints.
