Over the last year, Frohsin has embarked on a “paper airplane series?
?works that play with the sharp, white, angular forms, tangled in
cubist-like complexities, as well as with ideas of flight and inevitable
grounding. The series was inspired by a paper airplane the artist
found on the pavement one day, as she was walking between her Russian
Hill studio and her home near San Francisco Bay.
Frohsin’s first major shows were at the John Natsoulas Gallery in
Davis, California, among which, in 1993, in a group show with Manuel
Neri, Nathan Oliveira, and Stephen de Staebler. She has shown regularly
since, at such venues as the Campbell-Thiebaud Gallery, the Oakland
Museum, the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, and the San Francisco Museum
of Modern Art. She is
represented by the Dolly Chadwick Gallery in San Francisco.
More of her work can be seen at her website, which we featured in
our last Wunderkabinett: http://www.kimfrohsin.com.
