Piri Halasz reviews the exhibition Arrested Motion: Friedel Dzubas 1961-1971 on view at Loretta Howard Gallery, New York, through December 23, 2011.

Halasz notes that "The period covered by the show at Howard is a particularly important one for Dzubas, marking the years during which he evolved up & away from being merely a very good 'color-field' painter, producing paintings that, while handsome, belonged to the same general family as the work being done during that same period (of the early 60s) by Frankenthaler & Olitski (most notably)."
