Philip Frey: Moment[um]

Philip Frey: Moment[um] highlights recent work by Philip Frey, who is best known for his paintings of Maine’s coastline, landscape, and working waterfronts. In the exhibition catalog Bangor writer Annaliese Jakimides said: “What surprises him most, so many paintings later, is still the mark making and color. Both are undeniably muscular and bold and Frey.”

Frey’s primary focus is color and light, and the inherent forms found in nature, interiors, and figures. He paints from direct perception, preferring the dynamic quality, richness, and challenges of working from life.

This excerpt is from Philip Frey: Here and Now (Marshall Wilkes 2018), a recent monograph on Frey’s career by art historians  and critics Carl Little and Daniel Kany:

“As a painter, Philip Frey’s goal is often a project of soft persuasion. We recognize his scenes easily enough. But as we shift our focus from the recognizable subject to the insistent forms, luscious brushwork, and compositional design, the painting slips out of representational focus and back to abstraction, the true place of Frey’s poetry.” — Daniel Kany, Philip Frey: Here and Now
