Oโ€™Connell (.r.oconnell), curator of contemporary art.

Born in Washington, D.C., Fratt showed prodigious talent in art as early as age 9 and garnered much attention at age 15 when her painting won first place in an exhibition at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. She received numerous educational scholarships, as well as apprenticeships with cubist painter Karl Knaths and landscape and figure painter Nicolai S. Cikovsky. Originally joining the Washington Color School in the 1950s, Fratt left to forge her own style of abstraction that was more closely tied to the Southwest United States after she moved to Arizona in 1958. Although Frattโ€™s paintings are often classified as color field and abstract expressionist, her use of color and expression of her surroundings evolved into a prolific body of work that idiosyncratically emotes landscape, atmosphere, gesture, and mood on her own terms.

Spanning more than five decades of the artistโ€™s oeuvre, the exhibition will present a selection of foundational early works and ephemera alongside numerous paintings that exemplify Frattโ€™s vibrant and distinct style of abstraction. The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue in collaboration with Radius Books (.books) to present new scholarly essays on the artist; unpublished writing by the artist; an extensive biography; artist conversations with Teresa Baker (), Caroline Kent (), and Rebecca Ward (); and illustrations of artworks and ephemera.

Join us for an opening reception on Saturday, February 10th, from 6 to 8 PM. The exhibition will remain on view until March 16th, 2024.

Derived from the formalist traditions of geometric abstraction and hard-edge techniques, this diverse assembly of artists coheres around a joint venture to instill a sense of logical order and beauty within abstraction, predominantly through a reverence for the pure, foundational aspects of painting. Taken together, their individual explorations of natural sequences, architectural structures, mathematical gradients, and minimalist light and color, function to evidence how systematically arranged elements within a composition can generate not only active optical space, but also emotional and psychological effects that softly and suggestively approximate the realm of the divine.

Final days to see ๐“๐“ฎ๐”€ ๐“ก๐“ฒ๐“ฟ๐“ฎ๐“ป, Kate Sableโ€™s () second solo exhibition with the gallery, featuring new and recent paintings.

On view at PFAโ€“Washington D.C., through Saturday, January 13, 2024. Open Thursdayโ€“Saturday: 11 a.m to 6 p.m.

Kate Sableโ€™s abstract paintings are characterized by undulating curves, lush paint handling, and an intuitive approach to image construction. Her creative process is deeply rooted in the materials and physical act of painting, which serves both as means of visual investigation, as well as a conduit for her to explore personal metaphors and touchpoints. Her painted forms probe at and challenge the concept of boundaries, from the curvilinear edges of her shapes themselves, to the literal borders of the canvas, generating a teetering sense of movement and balance. This show is Sableโ€™s second solo presentation at the gallery, and it takes its name from the New River, which she grew up alongside. As this title suggests, her paintings and practice are characterized by a churning flow of images and ideas, a mercurial process that yields works that always feel freshly made, energetic, and ever-new.

Closing this week ๐™‹๐™ง๐™ค๐™ญ๐™ž๐™ข๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™š๐™จ, an exhibition of new paintings by Olivier Mosset, Michael Scott, and Blair Thurman.

In a rare convergence, three artists who lived and worked near one another in New York City since the late 1980s present their inaugural three-person show, ๐™‹๐™ง๐™ค๐™ญ๐™ž๐™ข๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™š๐™จ. The works featured exemplify formal abstraction through bold colors, shapes, and stark forms, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in open-ended physical encounters with surface, scale, and pattern. United less by a common aesthetic than by the intensity of their commitment to individual practices of conceptual abstraction amid the dominating forces of Postmodernism and Neoexpressionism throughout their formative years, these artists exemplify the dynamic spectrum of post-minimalism.

On view through Thursday, December 21, 2023 by appointment only.

A glance at Sableโ€™s titles makes it clear that for her, painting is not a purely formal occupation. Her exploratory approach to painting embraces a search for allusion, and titles like Cut by My Own Quip connect the paintings to broader situational and emotional landscapes. These connections arenโ€™t made based on a doctrine of similarity, but a free associative openness to the idea that anything can be in the work, and the deeper one digs, the richer the yield. โ€“Jacob Cartwright ()

Since the mid 1980s, ๐— ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ฒ๐—น ๐—ฆ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐˜๐˜ has created paintings that are visual experiences pushed to the extreme. In his paintings he has juxtaposed narrow vertical lines, at times in different colors and patterns, on aluminium panels. His artworks produce an optical impact that makes them difficult to look at and compels the viewer to see them differently each time. This disruptive experience underlines the artistโ€™s extreme approach to visual art. In the 1990s his paintings were known to be programmatic, in the sense that they were precisely calculated and the patterns were systematic. Later, they became more intuitive, allowing chance and the process to be evident. Steering away from subjectivity, Michael Scott currently explores a systematic approach to painting which, though pure and linear in form, remains painterly.

He began exhibiting his conceptually based abstract paintings at the Tony Shafrazi gallery in the late 1980s. Since then, his work has been exhibited widely in the US, Asia and Europe, in both gallery and museum exhibitions. His paintings are included in many public collections, including Le Consortium (Dijon, France); Le FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais (Dunkerque, France); MAMCO (Geneva, Switzerland); Le Musรฉe Cantonal des Beaux-Arts (Lausanne, Switzerland); Kunsthalle Bern (Bern, Switzerland); Fonds Cantonal dโ€™Art Contemporain, Switzerland, Musee des baux-arts, la Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, MACBA (Buenos Aires, Argentina), Los Angeles County Museum of Art, LACMA (Los Angeles, USA).

Heraclitus upended ancient philosophical ideas about the static nature of being with his epigram: โ€œNo person ever steps in the same river twice. For itโ€™s not the same river and they are not the same person.โ€ This bit of classical wisdom has stuck around because it rings so clearly true. Likewise there is a recognizable honesty to Sableโ€™s paintings, in the way she forgoes an attachment to what has been, allowing the past to feed her curiosity of what may yet be. Those who have lived in a river town know the answer to the riddle of how a watercourse can be both ancient and new. โ€“Jacob Cartwright ()

๐—Ÿ๐—ถ ๐—ง๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ has exhibited her work internationally for the past 30 years, including in Australia, Belgium, Germany, New Zealand, Switzerland, and the United States. During the early 1980s, she was heavily involved in the East Village abstract painting scene and showed at many of the landmark venues of the time, including Mission Gallery, Pyramid Club, Kamikaze Club, and The World. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, she exhibited at key galleries presenting new abstraction, such as Julian Pretto/Berland Hall, Stark Gallery, and Gabriele Bryers Gallery (all NYC), as well as the legendary Galerie Rolf Ricke in Cologne, Germany. During these critical formative years, she participated in two-person and group exhibitions alongside other pioneering abstract painters, such as Olivier Mosset, Alan Uglow, Steven Parrino, Don Voisine, Mark Dagley, Daniel Levine, Sharon Brant, Neil Campbell, and Gary Lang, among many others.

Li has received awards from the National Endowments for the Arts, Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Edward Albee Foundation, New York State Council on the Arts, and Artists Space. Her work has been reviewed in The New York Times, Bomb Magazine, The Brooklyn Rail, and Kunstforum, among others. Li holds an MFA in Painting from Hunter College, NYC, and a BFA in Printmaking from Southampton College, Southampton, NY.

His standardized forms, pulled from slot-car racetracks, architectural frameworks, and found shapes from daily life, comprise a personal iconographyโ€”the fascinations of boyhood working to render the subliminal realm of abstract geometries more idiosyncratic and accessible. Thurman refers to the style and significance of his work as its โ€œsignature-contentโ€ as he investigates the intersection between our cultural environment and our imagined fantasies, examining the memory and poetry embedded in the very act of looking.

In pursuit of formal rigor and the physical roots of painting, ๐—ข๐—น๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐— ๐—ผ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ฒ๐˜โ€™๐˜€ art is direct and self-evident, suppressing figuration, subjectivity, symbol, and metaphor in a practice that at once contains and rejects the dialectical history of painting. A member of the minimalist collective BMPT that also included Daniel Buren, Michel Parmentier, and Niele Toroni, Mossetโ€™s exploration is dedicated to interrogating fixed ideas about creative authorship. BMPT reflected critically on the spectacular, self-conscious nature of the new avant-garde in France. They suppressed subjectivity and expressiveness in favor of practical systems, such as the utilization of neutral, repetitive patterns and an apparent eschewal of aesthetic historical grounding. The 200 or more identical oil paintings that Mosset produced between 1966 and 1974, of a small black circle at the center of a square white canvas, are seen as the acme of BMPTโ€™s experimental approaches to painting, which sought to challenge established methods of art-making and theorize a new social and political function for art and artists. Associated with conceptual abstraction, Mossetโ€™s works represent pure color and shape, inciting open-ended physical experiences of surface, scale, and pattern.

Final day to see ๐™€๐™‹๐™„๐˜พ๐™€๐™‰๐™๐™€๐™ at PFAโ€“Washington D.C. An exhibition of works by Sue Crawford, Elise Ferguson, and Richard Tinkler.

These three artists offer a different perspective of abstraction through the intricacy of their compositions and personal use of color. Sue Crawford employs the visual language of color and structure to create meditative paintings and minimalist drawings. The works attract the viewer to follow the pulsing lines of finely tuned color applied to geometrically controlled unpredictable shapes. Elise Ferguson paints abstract forms that vibrate, breathe, and feel alive. Ferguson has devised a preset and obsessive method for creating paintings, giving her works a defined and unified parameter. With contrasting palettes and variations in her motifs, Ferguson's paintings inspire surprisingly complex emotions and states of mind. Richard Tinkler's paintings and drawings reflect an instinctive and intensive approach. His intricate pieces are simultaneously structured and hallucinatory. Tinkler's thorough work method builds upon foundational imagery of geometric grids. By maintaining a common language of shapes, colors, and application methods, each piece builds upon the preceding language and prepares the base of the next. Likewise, his meticulously and zealously depicted drawings are central to his oeuvre. These kaleidoscopic constructs develop a gridded compositional approach to create complex and dynamic geometries.

๐—˜๐—น๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฒ ๐—™๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ด๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ผ๐—ปโ€™๐˜€ work is about the flexible nature of perception. Using pattern and color, along with a range of process-driven approaches, the artist creates works based on mathematical puzzles and geometric variation. The artist uses what would typically be described as sculptors' materials: plaster on mdf panels and paper. The plaster is pigmented and troweled on, layer upon layer, to nearly sculptural levels. Inspired by Brutalismโ€™s uncamouflaged use of cement with seams showing and the irregularities embraced these works embody their inherent materiality and have a distinct object-like quality.

Ferguson strives towards something that is cerebral yet physical, one that reflects endless fascination with materials and their physical limits and capabilities. At the same time, she gives equal importance to the pleasures of creating something resolutely optical: concentric circles, radiating grids, and undulating patterns. Although the artist makes abstract images, things often begin to resemble โ€œsomethingโ€. This tendency is reflected in the titles, a means of embracing the associative nature of looking, thinking, and naming.

She holds a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (1988); and an MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago (1995). She has exhibited extensively in the United States and Europe, including solo exhibitions with Halsey McKay Gallery, Romer Young Gallery, ODD ARK-LA, White Columns, and 57W57 Arts. Her work is in the public collections of Progressive Art Collection, The Cleveland Clinic, Microsoft, Google, the RISD Museum, and SUNY Albany Museum, among others, as well as in many private collections.

Sue Crawfordโ€™s paintings embody an ethereal space in which to give form to pattern and cause to texture. Her work expresses and examines interconnection by means of layered pathways of line, color, and tone. With references such as geological strata, topographical maps, as well as gathered knowledge from regular forays in the woods, she creates personal terrains made of synergistic combinations of adjacent lines. Crawfordโ€™s artwork asserts the painted line as an interior experience, each layer serving as a space for exploration and constant change.

Although the three artists have known each other since the late 1980s, when they lived and worked near one another in New York City, Proximities will be their first three-person show. The works featured are examples of formal abstraction, using bold colors, shapes, and forms to incite open-ended physical experiences of surface, scale, and pattern. In the โ€™60s, Olivier Mosset was a member of the radical Paris-based collective now known as โ€œBMPTโ€; with his co-founders Daniel Buren, Michel Parmentier, and Niele Toroni, he questioned notions of authorship and originality. Known for his self-evident works, often using simple geometric shapes and monochromatic color fields, he was a key influence on the generation of Neo-Geo painters that emerged in the โ€™80s. Blair Thurman injects a fresh vitality into his works by fusing pop culture and abstraction. His work utilizes vibrant colors, neon lights, and found forms from daily life, examining the memory and poetry embedded in the very act of looking. Michael Scottโ€™s paintings on aluminum panels juxtapose narrow vertical lines in different colors and patterns. His artworks produce an optical impact that makes them difficult to look at and compels the viewer to see them differently each time. United less by a common aesthetic than by the intensity of their commitment to their individual practices, these artists showcase the dynamic range of work in the post-minimal field, inviting audiences to engage with their work in subliminal and personal ways.

A full-color catalogue with a conversation between the three featured artists and art critic Molly Warnock will be published to accompany this exhibition.
