This volume is the most vivid presentation to date of Suzan Frecon's (born 1941) engagement in her studio practice with natural light--the always-varying subtleties of which she integrates into how the painting is created. The focal point of the catalogue is the painstakingly reproduced color plates of 14 recent paintings, many of which are depicted several times in various types of light and from multiple angles, allowing the reader to experience the work in a way that is more akin to seeing them in person. It also features an essay by art writer David Cohen that strives to explain the complexity of viewing and experiencing Frecon's work. Rounding out the catalogue are numerous details and installation views, atmospheric color photographs of the artist's studio and materials, and an illustrated visual appendix showing a selection of Frecon's reference sources for the works, including commentary by the artist.
David Cohen is a British joutnalist who has written for The Independent, The Guardian, and British GQ, as well as The New York Times. In 1997, he was the recipient of a harkness fellowship hosted by Columbia University, which enabled him to write this book. He lives in london with his wife and two daughters.
