The result of a deliberative process guided by careful attention to spatial relationships, the large-scale oil paintings of Suzan Frecon (born 1941) are composed of asymmetrical curves that result in minor and major measured areas of color. Accompanying the artist's solo exhibitions at David Zwirner, New York and London, in 2017, this publication features a selection of new monumental paintings carefully reproduced both as individual works and in installation views to best convey the experience of seeing the work. As depending on the viewer's position and the time of the day, the contrasts of matte and sheen, positive and negative, and immediacy and radiance, combine to create an ongoing visual experience of always varying subtleties.
In contrast to the paintings, her watercolors, also featured here, engage the relationship between paint and paper support.
