Lykke Frydenlund has worked for many years in parallel with the color scheme of architecture, both exterior and interior. The experience of architectural elements, spaces, colors and surfaces is incorporated into the intimate format and tactile paper.
The drawings put together elements of repetition and rhythm. There are expressions that give experiences in the excitement – or – the tension between these. Frydenlund works with dimensions and different values, where a small change or displacement can have major consequences.
In the drawings, structure, line, form and color become the meaningful expression in which variation and astonishment occur in a structural context; What never took place puts its tracks.
The drawings are performed with pencil, oil pastel (Sennelier) and sometimes gouache on paper. The pencil and the soft oil pastel stock in certain works traces of hand and craft.
