Kim Frohsin "Wigs and Silhouettes"
May 7 — June 27, 2009

These energetic and bold works signify a breakthrough in Frohsin’s process. Abstracting the figure through color and collage, the resulting works are both engaging emotionally and aesthetically compelling.

The body of work included in Wigs and Silhouettes exemplifies an exciting shift in Frohsin’s way of working. Although the armature of the image is still taken from direct observation of the human form, these new works offer a fresh perspective to her artistic vision. Puzzle-like and spontaneous, the ground meets the figure as colors collide and create images that are at once organic and mechanical. Using mostly palette knives, razor blades and crushed pigment, Frohsin’s mark making is truly original and dynamic.
