Marcel Frey – Lorem Ipsum

In “Lorem Ipsum”, his fourth solo show at Galerie Thomas Fischer, Marcel Frey presents a series of new paintings that he created by folding canvas and treating it with spray paint. The folds result in geometric shapes and surfaces which, interrupted by intermittent lines and curves, appear like fragments of a larger whole. While the eye attempts to reunite the individual visual elements with one another by way of imaginary turning, rotating, and re-sorting, the content of what is represented—similar to the dummy text “Lorem Ipsum”, which is always just a form, but never a support of concrete information—remains temporarily unclear.
