David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of paintings by Suzan Frecon, the artist's third solo show at the gallery. On view at 525 West 19th Street in New York will be recent large-scale oil paintings.
For the past four decades, Frecon has become known for abstract oil paintings and watercolors that avoid facile explanations or recognizable visual associations. Instead, composition works with color, with surface, and with light to create an abstract visual reality that she intends to exist solely on its strength as art. In a deliberative and searching process, she works toward painting that provides a complex, powerful, and inexplicable experience for the viewer. As she has stated, "The physical reality and the spiritual content of my paintings are the same."
