‘The forces put into play are those customary to abstract creation. The particularity of the treatment, the Relationship to the instantaneousness of the gesture, “a painting can take several years before being finished”, the conception of the forms, of the structure, distance Lois Frederick from lyrical abstraction without placing her in the field of cold geometric painting… That is where her originality lies, her art is American first, her traveling companions — conscious or not — from the other side of the Atlantic.’
Michel Faucher, 1987
