Genie Davis reviews Christine Frerichs’ Beacon in Artscene 2.22.17

(Klowden Mann Gallery, Culver City) Christine Frerichs creates layered, complex works that are rich, thick and textured, a world that dazzles with light.

Goalkeepers
Feb 09, 2017 - Rodrigo Valenzuela
Goalkeepers are interesting because when you’re a kid, nobody wants to be the goalie – actually in a pick up game the last one to be selected is the goal keeper.
