Statement

Robert Fry is interested in the problematics of transferring the world and the self onto paper. Using both painting and copper plate etching, he wilfully creates confusions of perspective that lock the artist and subject into a strange and sinister dance of egos. Whilst his large-scale paintings are more minimalist they nevertheless also tackle the theme of portraiture, both of the self and of the other that dominates the suite of untitled etchings from 2005. In these etchings we find that time and again he presents himself flattened into the floor at the feet of his sitter - the artist as demented draughtsman being sucked into his subject, or perhaps the other way round. Fry's work forms part of several private collections in Paris and London, he will be shown at Miami 2008, ARCO9 and simultaneous to Make Believe, he will be exhibiting a selection of works at Platform Gallery, London in October 2008. Fry will have a solo show at the Alexia Goethe Gallery in 2009 following his participation in a group exhibition at the gallery in 2008.
