Interview: Friedhard Meyer
Luca Curci talks with Friedhard Meyer during FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES, second appointment of BORDERS – Venice International Art Fair at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space.

With this project I have set myself the task of reducing paintings to colours, and to let colours lead the way, ways of abstracting colours as much as possible, reducing them to the impact they may have, turning colours into art. This type of painting is rooted in the desire to create colours in their context and their interrelation with each other. My colour compositionsare an expression of the intuition generated by colours rather than the result of mathematical-geometrical considerations, as proclaimed by Concrete Art. I have always been fascinated by and searched for the mystery of colours, and the sentiments they convey. It is my aim to detect the essentials of colours, and to capture them in my paintings. These paintings convey a message, which goes beyond the colourful and formal sensation of paintings. It is the experience of tranquility, simplicity, meditative contemplation that these colour spaces convey. I have developed a particular acrylic needle technique which I use for these paintings, whereby the surfaces are solely generated by applying a 10 cm wide flat brush in a vertical direction. The colours are virtually applied with thin needles, whereby various coats of colour may overlap. In doing so, there is a high concentration of colours in the smallest of spaces. Among others, the appeal of these paintings lies in their precision. This type of colour application is an important and unique characteristic of my paintings.

Rather than self-taught in this field, I practised a lot of black and white film which I developed and printed myself. Then around the age of 16, I got into photography and color film printing. I also had the opportunity to work on set photos for a feature film in the 1976s. Read more
