Alan Pocaro reviews an exhibition of paintings by Judith Geichman at Carrie Secrist Gallery, Chicago, on view through March 30, 2013.

Pocaro writes: "Working within the sparest of parameters, Geichman’s paintings are thrilling displays of dexterity. Her square supports and strictly achromatic blend of acrylic and enamel paint evoke the kind of old-school, unabashedly mid-century abstraction that pulses with the vigor and vitality of the artist’s hand. The brash white gestures and viscous pools of black paint in canvases such as 'Flash' and 'Zoo Toon' elicit vaguely figurative references—while 'Flow' throbs with a barely contained, almost erotic energy."
