This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

French-born painter Bernard Frize is a process-driven formalist, in the Greenbergian sense, who states quite forcefully that his art is about painting itself, and not a vehicle for expressing feelings or recreating fragments of reality. He conceives of himself as a laborer, or craftsman, who produces paintings. His interest as a painter is in the paint, the tools, and the application of the paint on the canvas, in forms and patterns that interest him.

His is an industrial approach, often relying upon assistants to help in the execution of the works. In creating Roxy, where the paint strokes resemble a complex braid of colors, a glossy layer of resin is applied to the support so that the strokes meld and blur, an effect that makes the handmade quality less obvious and the painting more detached in its effect.
