Claire Lambe writes about NATURE/NURTURE: Paintings by Deborah Freedman and Jennifer Hicks in her Roll Magazine write-up, "Spring Awakening," on Hudson Valley art events.
Also in Saugerties, Nature/Nurture: Paintings by Deborah Freedman and Jennifer Hicks opened on April 1 at Cross Contemporary Art (81 Partition Street) in advance of CCA’s consolidation into a larger space at 99 Partition Street in May. Freedman and Hicks’ bodies of work explore the rhythm and movement of nature, the natural fluctuations and shifts of the forest at night or distilling cosmic patterns onto canvas. Jennifer Hicks’ career as a performance artist informs her work as a painter, which addresses the mysterious presences that arise in a forest at twilight. Deborah Freedman, whose work can be found in such collections as The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The New York Public Library, and the Library of Congress, captures the larger impressions and the ephemera of the natural world with commanding brushwork and color.
