Reflex Amsterdam is thrilled to be mounting American painter Brian Fahlstrom’s first extensive European solo show since 2007 and his very first exhibition at the gallery.
Fahlstrom’s picturesque works depict imagined landscapes that move freely between abstraction and figuration, and simultaneously capture his mastery of colour and paint: yellows and reds, greens and blues flow into one another like surreal sunsets on his panels and canvasses. His work is assertive in its physical presence, with paint and surface playing an important role, its true nature unravelling in the tension between image and materiality.
About the artist
The work of Brian Fahlstrom evades historical placement, being firmly rooted in the tradition of painting's past while simultaneously existing very much in the present. His paintings of landscapes, architecture, and the figure sometimes verge on abstraction.
