This event has ended.

Fredericks & Freiser presents an exhibition of new paintings by Jocelyn Hobbie. For over 20 years, Hobbie has painted the figure. From her earlier dream-like narratives to her most recent flawlessly articulated paintings of real and imaginary women, Hobbie has fused themes of mortality, eroticism and the persistent disaffection of contemporary life.

For this exhibition, Hobbie will present paintings on canvas and paper completed over the last two years. Echoing styles as divergent as New Objectivity and Ukiyo-e, Hobbie hones a formal inventiveness in which neoclassical figures with pensive expressions are depicted amid bold patterning and floral settings. Her heightened naturalism and enhanced degree of saturated color reveal an uneasy relationship to realism and firmly root these striking paintings in the age of post abstraction.

Jocelyn Hobbie was born in Northampton, MA. She has had solo exhibitions at Jack Tilton Gallery, New York; Bellwether, New York; and Kerry Schuss, New York. She is featured in Painting People: Figure Painting Today by Charlotte Mullins, published by D.A.P. Most recently, she was included in Hope and Hazard: A Comedy of Eros curated by Eric Fischl at the Hall Art Foundation. This is her third solo exhibition at Fredericks & Freiser.
