Christian Frosch
Malereiforschung aus der Villa Romana - March 05 until April 03, 2004

 

“In his most recent work with buckets of paint, Christian Frosch has radicalized his approach even further. Here the question “Where is the picture ?” is answered absolutely positivistically. The picture must be where the paint is. Since paint is delivered in buckets it must be there that the picture is to be found. His idea follows a logic which could have been devised by Karl Valentin. Bernard Frize would at least have found it necessary to put the dried skins of his paint pots on the canvas. To present his art Christian Frosch simply takes the lids off his paint cans, just as other people take off their hats. The bucket of paint does the rest. Like Bernard Frize, Christian Frosch entrusts his art to the material itself. When the paint dries the picture comes into existence with the artist doing (almost) nothing. He doesn’t lift a finger or transmit anything to the canvas. That is an ironical revival of Minimalism and Arte Povera, bringing the Ready-Made into the sphere of painting.” (Jan Thorn-Prikker)

A Catalogue will be published by Kunstverein Aichach (28.3. bis 25.4.2004) supported by Hypo-Kulturstiftung, Munich (text by Jan Thorn-Prikker).
