Phil Davis Curator, Gateway Art Center

 Phil Davis's  curatorial remarks that accompanied an exhibition at Gateway Arts Center  “… Fragione’s art pours over with the physical material of paint and mark-making as an act of exploration. Her complex use of color and her layered covering-up of forms create images that reveal themselves slowly and with great reward. An inheritor of the San Francisco Bay Area School of abstract expressionism, her paintings “… are at once of this time and also firmly rooted in the uniquely American abstract expressionist tradition.”
