Peter Frie’s paintings are rooted in the long tradition of landscape painting, and especially in the way of depicting landscape as a powerfully charged mood. The paintings manifest a powerful sense of place, but they also have a metaphorical dimension so that any overly explicit link with a certain place tends to become blurred. Frie does not reproduce views but paints memories.  The landscape and its melancholic, occasionally optimistic light signify an emotional state more than represent the actual landscape itself.


Since 1988, Frie’s paintings have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions throughout Europe. His works are included in the collection of Moderna Museet in Stockholm, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, and the Friesichen Museum in Leeuwarden, as well as private collections in Europe and the United States. 


Galerie Forsblom has been representing Peter Frie since 1991.
