On Recognition marks Christine Frerichs' first solo exhibition and presents a series of paintings and drawings demonstrating Frerichs' ongoing interest in repetition and memory. In these works, she playfully examines the process of recognition or 'knowing again', by extracting the visually and emotionally potent aspects of a memory - a person's flesh tone, the lavender sweater her mother wore, the particular green color of the grass in Bryant Park, New York. Using color, composition, texture and form, she then systematically reconstructs these memories with layers of interlocking paint, resulting in expressively psychological portraits, at once vulnerable and questioning.
