Banana Split: The full blast of light, shining down on a basking behemoth, is a reminder that power is in the eye of the beholder. The brightest crayon in the box is always the most manipulative. The sculpture, like a forward little angel, gestures glowingly in hopefulness.



Gutinke Meine, 'My Sweetheart', a sculpture series by Fringe, is created to represent his alter ego. The artist’s grandmother called him this in his childhood.

The character is childlike but seems to inhabit no fixed time, so it’s a kind of historical toy. It looks futuristic and forlorn but also retro and cute. These intriguing contradictions in its personality allow for human traits to shine through.

Gutinke Meine gives Fringe space to play, and create various effects. The character has been adorned with Andy Warhol’s flowers, Klimt's garden, Van Gogh's sunflowers and super hero costumes 

Gutinke Meine pops up in the paintings of Fringe as a central character with real concerns. There is a universal warmth about it, Gutinke Meine being the ordinary person dealing with all kinds of love and deep human matters of the heart. These narratives accompany the character in the paintings as text.

The sculpture series is created in bronze and acrylic, with various colors and finishes of gloss and matt.
