    Christine Frerichs is a nationally and internationally exhibited painter, and represented by Klowden Mann gallery in Culver City, CA. Her work addresses the formal and conceptual concerns of painting and drawing using an extensive vocabulary of color, material, and techniques ranging from representation to abstraction. Working from memory, imagination and observation, Frerichs creates densely layered abstract portraits and landscapes using oil paint, wax, charcoal, acrylic, spray paint, and aluminum. Her work has been reviewed by art ltd., Artpulse, Artforum, The Los Angeles Times, and published in New American Paintings. In the classroom, Frerichs supports the creative potential of each student by teaching the fundamental skills of color, value, form and composition, and motivating students to apply these skills while developing their own personal content, creative intention and expression.
