Adri Frigge, Rotterdam, 1947
In addition to all the techniques that were still compulsory at the time, the Academy of Visual Arts has a cycle etchings based on contemporary music. For this he received the 'threshold price'. Music and etching have since remained a main line in his work, alongside work in oil, watercolor (portraits) and pastel. He has been affiliated with the CKVU since 1977; now the Mondriaanhuis. The etchings of Adri have their origins in music, especially from 20th century composers. In the pleasure of it he follows the flow in craftsmanship: where does the tone in the silence touch the line in white? Etchings are for Adri Frigge often visual music, a line in white has the same experience for him as a sound in the space. He also makes many portraits, both in etching and in pastel, watercolor, oil paint and pencil.
