The ongoing exhibition of Judith Giechman’s work at the Carrie Secrist Gallery is a series of abstract works in Grayscale. She has taken the paper/canvas on an adventure where she explores the materiality by various mark making techniques, playing with the flow of paints, gestural movements, drips and layering. This depiction of abstraction gives each work a different storyline. Each work can be viewed as a landscape, or composition of figures in space, underwater-world or a science experiment of collision of atoms. The possibilities are endless. It also refers to the process of making the artwork; we can see the rhythmic moves which are like a dance. There is a sense of dynamic nature which draws you in the work and evokes your senses.  It doesn’t fail to cast a charm and leave you bedazzled.

This new work is a visual treat for our eyes and each work has a transcendental aspect which goes beyond the physical appearance.
