The first full-length monograph on the paintings of Bernard Frize
Bernard Frize's work straddles movements and styles from Colour Field to Minimalism, Fluxus, and Conceptual Art.
Emerging from the politicised 1970s onwards, Frize swam against the tide of opinion regarding painting's apparent obsolescence to develop a painting practice that could express political commitment and social concerns, while avoiding both overt statement and pure decoration.
David Rhodes' text provides a detailed consideration of Frize's development, from the earliest works onwards. Placing his paintings in a broader art-historical and philosophical context, a wider conversation about painting itself is presented alongside Frize's significant place within the medium's history.
