Through her international presence in exhibitions worldwide, Pia Fries has become one of the foremost representatives of European abstract painting. Born in the Swiss town of Beromünster in 1955, she now lives and works in Düsseldorf and Munich. A former student in the masterclass of Gerhard Richter, Pia Fries herself has since gone on to teach in a variety of institutions, from Lucerne to Karlsruhe, Düsseldorf and Berlin, and has been a professor of painting at the Akademie der Künste in Munich since 2014. Her works can be found in leading public collections throughout the USA and Europe. Among the many awards she has won, the most recent is the 2014 Art & Culture Prize bestowed by the City of Lucerne. We are delighted to be able to welcome Pia Fries once again, for her fifth exhibition in our gallery. This time, we present works from different cycles between 2006 and the present day.
