Location: Ruth C. Horton Gallery, Moss Arts Center, 190 Alumni Mall, Blacksburg, VA 24060

Ruth C. Horton Gallery

Pia Fries (Swiss; based in Dusseldorf, Germany) is internationally acclaimed as an undaunted and intrepid artist, whose exuberant paintings integrate silkscreened fragments of 17th century Baroque and Mannerist prints with the gestural rigor and emotional depth of Abstract Expressionism. Characterized by audacious color and thick, pulsating pigment applied with brushes, spatulas, and palette knives, Fries' paintings represent a hybrid fusion of painting and printmaking, figuration and abstraction, and tradition with innovation.

This exhibition presents a selection of paintings and prints from the renowned Pizzuti Collection; CRG Gallery in New York; Christopher Grimes Gallery in Santa Monica, California; and Crown Point Press in San Francisco.
