Press Release

Fredericks & Freiser is pleased to present Unrealism Part 1, a group exhibition including works by Justin Craun, Robert Feintuch, Audrey Flack, Jocelyn Hobbie, Ridley Howard, Kurt Kauper, Karen Kilimnik and Jansson Stegner.  

 

Unrealism Part 1 features an idiosyncratic group of artists who share an uneasy relationship with realism. Employing different compositional strategies ranging from impossible anatomies to hyper-intense color to spatial ambiguity, the artists in this exhibition look to realism as less of a painting process and more of a rhetoric on which to build a highly personal and psychological experience of the real.

 

 

 

Unrealism Part 1 will be on view at Fredericks & Freiser (536 West 24th Street) through July 24, 2014. Summer hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10:00AM to 5:00PM. For more information, please contact us by email (info@fredericksfreisergallery.com) or by telephone (212 633 6555), and visit us online at www.fredericksfreisergallery.com.
