Oslo / Norway / Oct 8th 2015: 
Per Fronth open new graphic works only exhibition Blue Venia at Kunstverket Galleri in Oslo on Thursday Oct 8th.
This is Fronthś first exhibition presenting only works on paper in graphic techniques, drypoint, etching, polymer and lithos. 
Produced in sessions this fall at Atelje Ole Larsen, Helsingborg and in Paris, France, at Idem Paris the works represents a revisit to the exploration of graphic mediums he enjoyed and challenges in New York.

Per Fronth started his career as an artist in New York in the early 90s. He studied printing at the now famous PrintMaking Workshopcreated by masterprinter Bob Blackburn, who also received the MacArthur Fellowship. At PMW Fronth met printer Esteban Chaves, a Yale University Alumni who became his first teacher in photoetchings and the possibilites of the print medium. Later Fronth went on to work with printer Nathan Kanofsky of Arak Kanofsky Studios in New Jersey who produced the series Xingu Chronicles , which became Fronthś breaktrough as an artist, presented at Dillon Gallery in New York in 1998, both controversial and hugely successfull.
The exhibition Blue Venia follows three separate narratives intutively related to Nature and Human Nature.
