"A curatorial tour-de-force" —Alfred Mac Adam
This fully-illustrated softcover catalogue is published on the occasion of Jane Freilicher: Abstractions, on view at Kasmin from March 2 – April 22, 2023. The book features an introduction by Mary Gabriel, author of Ninth Street Women, and an essay by writer and scholar Erin Kimmel, along with an updated artist chronology.The exhibition presents a group of paintings in degrees of abstraction, realized by Freilicher between 1958 and 1962, a period of great inventiveness when the artist was spending stretches of time in Long Island but had yet to establish a studio there. The series marks a crucial moment of discovery and focus for Freilicher, who went on to integrate the freedom, fluidity, and confidence developed during this period into her more recognizable still lifes and landscapes of later decades.
