New Paintings

October 25 through December 22, 2018

Opening reception: Thursday, October 25, 6 to 8 pm

 

Fredericks & Freiser is pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings by Jocelyn Hobbie. For over 20 years, Hobbie has painted the figure. From her earlier dream-like narratives to her most recent  paintings of flawlessly articulated women, Hobbie has fused themes of mortality, eroticism and a persistent disaffection with contemporary life.

 

For this exhibition, Hobbie will present paintings on canvas and paper completed over the last two years. Echoing styles as divergent as the expressive figuration of New Objectivity and the layered patterning of Ukiyo-e, Hobbie hones a formal inventiveness in which neoclassical figures with pensive expressions are depicted amid bold patterning and vivid floral settings. Her heightened naturalism and enhanced degree of saturated color reveal an uneasy relationship to realism and firmly root these striking paintings in the age of post abstraction.
