About

Gerhard Frommel's abstracted works richochet between the rational and chaotic. Analogous to the birth of our universe, Frommel's paintings grapple with the materialization of form within the void. Undulating primordial spaces which coalesce and collapse, are in a tense juxtaposition with graphic representations of the rational. Gonzo gestures threaten to envelop geometric forms, which refuse to be drawn back into primordial chaos. Frommel's interior spaces exhibit a heterogeneous geography, where tautological juxtapositions force a swift recourse into Dionysian versus Apollonian allegory. Gerhard Frommel was born in Austria and lives and works in New York. He received an MFA from the University of Applied Arts, Vienna, and an MA in Philosophy, Pedagogy, and Psychology from the University of Vienna. Frommel completed the Whitney Independent Study Program under Benjamin Buchloh. His work has been exhibited by Mass MoCa, North Adams, MA, the Clocktower, Bronx, NY, Haven Arts Gallery, Bronx, NY, and Espace Jacques Donguy, Paris, among others. In 1993 Frommel co-founded the Institute of the History of the Avant-garde, a platform for avant-garde theory and activist praxis.
