This weekend at VOLTA, Gallery | KM from Santa Monica, CA, presented Christine Frerich's diminutive, thickly painted abstractions. Frerich's work seemed out of place in an art fair atmosphere--more handmade and personal than the glitzy, over-produced projects and installations that dominate the fairs. But there they were. Working in an intimate scale that she compares to a handwritten letter, Frerichs explores three themes in her paintings: the relationship
between two people, sight (and it's interruption), and the possibility that imagined landscape space can convey emotional transformation.
