Stephen Friedman Gallery will dedicate a solo exhibition to the recent practice of Pam Glick, who joined the gallery this March. Characterized by the juxtaposition of repeated segments of line with layers of gestural mark-making, Glick’s paintings attest to her interest in the universal language of abstraction. Describing her experimental process as a “playground,” the artist uses calligraphic pencil marks to disrupt the grid structure of the canvas. She organizes the works into sections to create rhythm, alternating between movement and stillness, strong lines and intuitive, free-flowing forms. Drawn to edges and the division of space, Glick refers to her primary motif as a “zip.”
