Typically made on found vintage paper, Frecon’s watercolors often take as their point of departure the unique characteristics of each leaf of paper she uses. Varying from sheet to sheet, the irregular scale, texture, and surfaces impose their own dynamic constraints upon her compositions. These works demonstrate in a different medium the artist’s continued engagement with the chromatic and sensory possibilities of painting, and of pure abstraction.
