Jurij Frey - Wartende

Jurij Frey - Wartende
Oil on hardboard - Artist's stamp, Hand signed - 2016

German artist Jurij Frey has developed a realistic painting style, whose blocks of colour and contrasts of light nevertheless reveal an inner complexity. Inspired by a universal subject, man and his condition, the painter and trained illustrator proceeds with touches, which he applies with lively, irregular gestures and always permits turbidity, an inertness in the contours of the forms, which symbolises the doubt present in each of us. For it is, in fact, the modern man who lives and works in the city, that populates the paintings of Jurij Frey. The artist explores the contrast between speed, acceleration of city life and the personal, intimate search for serenity, peace, and the need for nature, light, wandering, and large spaces, pointing out the contradictions in today's world.
