Catherine Freudenberg's strengths lie in her approach to color and light...the monotypes on related subject matter- such as Aku Akiyi (2009), with its simplified lineup of moody stone figures- showed an effective use of the white of the paper, which appeared through fluid, abbreviated brushstrokes that infused the scenes with movement and light. The abstracted bands of pale gray. blue, and green in Glacier Argentina (2008) are reminiscent of Milton Avery's reductive landscapes.
