Suzan Frecon, oil paintings and sun, 02.19 - 03.28

Suzan Frecon's third solo show this February at David Zwirner in New York. This would be a great reason to get the hell out of San Francisco! Suzan creates beautiful arrangements of color and form. And in a similar way as Don Voisine, she uses variations of sheen from matte to gloss. I find her paintings to be absolutely stunning.

David Zwirner press release for the upcoming show is here:

You can see a video of Suzan's 2010 solo show at David Zwirner below on James Kalm's Rough Cut:
