Work from Fred Rolf's extensive cycle «Streifenbilder (striped pictures)».
«Lines - Fred Rolf calls them stripes - were, alongside colour field painting, a theme that constantly challenged him and grew from many years of work as an architect. The first published painting was created in 1998, a striped painting on a wooden board from the construction industry. From the beginning it was clear to him that he would only work with oil paint - diluted at first, later straight from the tube. First on paper, then wood, chipboards, steel plates or even found objects, Fred Rolf produced a great variety with a similar structure. He also developed palette knife works on canvas or wooden panels. Rolf experimented a lot - for example, from 2006 onwards with horizontal structures and impasto brushstrokes. Different widths and long colour-coordinated dividing stripes were inserted. Thus, wet-on-wet works in oil paint were created on wood or canvas.» from: Joachim Frommherz, Künstler auf einer Linie, in: Badische Zeitung, 18.12.2015.
Provenance: studio of the artist; since then private collection Baden-Württemberg.
