“Fries aims to create paintings that capture motor racing on it’s nostalgic best.”
The real challenge is interpreting the subject and to make an appealing image. This is obtained by skillfully manipulating the historic references, the impression of speed, the background, light and reflections…and making them stronger through color, mood, texture, composition and style. The interaction between these elements make every new painting a personal challenge. It’s a process of constantly searching and continuously evolving his work.
His goal is to create work that provides lasting pleasure and an artistic value, not only to motoring enthousiasts.
Fries has sold his paintings on various exhibitions and motorracing events in Europe. He has had several commissions for motoring related art and posters.
Commisions are accepted.
