About the artist
Fruzsina Kiss (1998) studies at the Weissensse Kunsthochschule in Berlin. Her large-scale canvases nevertheless attest to an unusually mature methodology of gesture painting. Kiss’s visual world is often grounded in calligraphy; her handwritten notes play an important role in many of her works. In her paintings, Kiss combines the liberating effect of automatic writing with the visual logic of gesture painting based on complementary colours. Patterns that tend toward the abstract form additional layers, interrupted by spatially extensive signs and symbols. While, similarly to her peers, Kiss’s art draws heavily on contemporary fashion and music, her main inspiration lies in her own instinctive painterly logic, which has the capacity to seamlessly fuse several of these painterly layers.
