About Klaus von Frieling

Photographic artist Klaus von Frieling creates scenes using distinctive visual components, filtering his compositions down to the contrasts between different surfaces and colours.

Von Frieling dissolves reality into rich, colourful surfaces. Glossy objects rise from matte structures in rhythmic intervals. His approach employs a strict graphic order that strengthens the abstractness of the images.

By abandoning image depth and optical backgrounds, Frieling allows geometric colour patterns defined by straight lines to come to the fore. His depiction of daily reality is a departure from our spatial perception. It represents an essential inventory of functional objects such as garage doors, house walls, or a protruding bicycle part, though we scarcely identify them as such. The optical appearance of the colours alone creates a form of aesthetic relief.

The result is a conceptual viewpoint that dissects urban space into a contrast of structures and surfaces. Frieling has developed a powerful style that does not trivialise items and objects; its strength of expression lies in the objects’ deliberate, delicate juxtaposition.
