Douglass Freed, Paintings, 1973-2010

February 5 - May 29, 2011 Free Admission

This retrospective traces the evolution of a body of work that has consistently explored issues of abstraction, suggestion, surface, and deep space. The survey ranges from large-scale monochromatic color fields to more structured arrangements inspired by the archeology of Greece and Mexico. An impressive group of paintings from the last 10 years reveals Freed’s mature elaboration of his abiding aesthetic concerns in compositions that transform the schematic markers of landscape into monumental paintings of quiet mood and sublimity.
