Judith Roston Freilich’s drawings and the textiles invite us to step inside the complicated journey within each of us. They reveal both the devastating parts of life and the overwhelmingly beautiful parts.
The marks, stitches, and materials in the work reflect our complex rhythms, incongruities, and relationships. There are bursts of energy — fierce, uncontrolled, uninhibited urgencies — and beautiful swells of serenely floating calm and deep searches. In some work, the process seems unfinished, leaving traces of past journeys and exploration for the future.
