Guido Frick's artistic journey is a harmonious fusion of influences from Europe and the United States. In the early 1970s, he pursued his passion under the guidance of Professor Karel Hodr, a luminary in the realm of European Impressionism. Subsequently, Frick embarked on an enriching artistic odyssey, enrolling in the Bongart School of Art in California and Idaho. Upon his return to Europe, Guido's reputation as a painter continued to ascend, with his works gracing the walls of prestigious galleries in Germany, Switzerland, and Italy. Notably, his art has been immortalized in the pages of renowned art books, and he clinched the esteemed Prix de Salon of Fontainebleau-Paris. Guido Frick's creative canvas knows no bounds, as he traverses the landscapes of the Netherlands, Southern France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, and the Western parts of the United States, which hold a special place in his heart. His deep affinity for the Old West permeates his work, radiating through bold, vigorous brushwork and brilliant color harmonies, traits that have fueled the growing appreciation and demand for his art. Melding the best of American and European training, Frick's oeuvre carries a unique and captivating character. For Guido, nature is the ultimate studio for impressionists, and his landscapes and florals are crafted en plein air. In his own words, "If you don’t let your feelings come out while painting, nothing will happen on the canvas. The painting should mirror your personality. Be yourself, then your paintings get soul, heart, and power." Guido views his creative process as a perpetual dialogue with nature, echoing the influence of Sergei Bongart, who awakened his artistic vision. Frick defies categorization, transcending the boundaries of impressionism and expressionism. He believes in expressing himself and bringing impressions to life in his unique, pleasant way, unburdened by restrictive labels. His work encapsulates the fleeting moments, shifting moods, atmospheres, and light of the world in constant motion, capturing the essence of transitions between dying, transformation, and rebirth. For Guido, painting is more than the freedom of the brushstroke; it is the thoughtful process, one brushstroke at a time, moment by moment. His heart and mind are ever attuned to the next horizon, as he perpetually seeks to convey his visions in each masterpiece, perpetually in search of that elusive, ever-evolving next horizon.
