MURRAY FREDERICKS has a large feature in the latest edition of Artist Profile magazine. Fredericks touches on his formal influences, his process, and his ongoing relationship with Lake Eyre. 

"The geometry goes back to the Bechers, and Donald Judd in minimalism. One of the criticisms of that minimalism is that it's detached and cold. I look at this as minimalist work but overlaying it with emotion and re-overlaying with a political message...What I am looking at is anything in the landscape that is used to quantify the viewer's experience. Out there it is about setting up where perspective and scale are denied. That is where I am trying to find abstraction," says Fredericks.

Issue 47 of Artist Profile is in stores now and the profile will be online in the weeks to come.
