Xico Greenwald reviews Jane Freilicher and Jane Wilson: Seen and Unseen at the Parrish Art Museum, Water Mill, New York, on view through January 18, 2016.
Greenwald writes: "Despite all they have in common, in this show [Freilicher's and Wilson's] differences stand out. While working in the same place at the same time, moving in the same circles, each developed a unique style. Wilson’s career culminates in large, pared-down landscapes from memory. Nearly abstract in their reductionism, Wilson’s moody canvases convey her state of mind as much as the surrounding marsh and beach. Freilicher, on the other hand, has a maximalist approach, painting everything she sees with gusto."
