David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by American artist Suzan Frecon. On view at the gallery’s 525 West 19th Street space, this is the first solo exhibition by the artist since she joined the gallery in 2008.
For the past four decades, Frecon has become known for abstract oil paintings and watercolors that are at once reductive and expressive. Composed with subtle, interacting arrangements of color, which the artist applies with meticulous attention to the physical qualities of paint, they appear to blur the distinction between matter and transcendence. Color assumes a physical property and almost appears material; as the artist has stated, "The reality and the spiritual of my paintings are the same."

Produced to accompany Frecon’s first exhibition at David Zwirner, this publication features a text by Joachim Pissarro and reproductions of the artist's large-scale oil paintings, as well as photographs of the exhibition and of Frecon's studio, and images of her notebooks and sketches. Also included is the facsimile of a personal letter to the artist from the poet Clark Coolidge. Published by David Zwirner | Radius Books
