Suzan Frecon: Oil Paintings and Sun

"That Suzan Frecon’s paintings work slowly is almost a truism," David Cohen writes in David Zwirner Books' recent monograph, Oil Paintings and Sun. "They become more intriguing as you spend time with them, adjusting to their inner light, intuiting their own terms. But richness and depth don’t withhold themselves until some 'aha' moment. Increase of mystery neither belies nor contradicts initial retinal impact. Frecon gives us resonant, saturated color; fulsome, credible, alluring shapes; surfaces that are lush yet modulated, allover yet variegated; immediately right-seeming if unexpected compositions. (Fidelity to a lexicon of nonetheless irregular and growing forms makes her works feel like instant classics.) All these elements are available, at once, to the intelligent eye." Featured image is "Dark Red Cathedral (Tre)" (2014).
