What Comes After
On View May 20, 2009- September 20, 2009
Nancy Friedemann lives and works in Bogota, Colombia and New York. In her paintings, she manipulates symbols that deal with ideas about femininity and the role of women in art history. Friedemann is inspired by Spanish colonial painting styles and Minimalism. In painting these delicate objects in a careful and detailed way, Friedemann monumentalizes them, giving them a heroic place and scale. By re-enacting the process of making lace through drawing and painting, each done with tiny strokes and an economy of materials, Friedemann explores the experience of identity and memory from a feminist perspective.
