18 June – 5 July 2008: Sara Freeman – Recent Paintings

Freeman

Gallery 2

Sara Freeman recently undertook a residency at Schloss Haldenstein, Switzerland where she commenced this series of paintings during the northern hemisphere winter.  These serene works reference the crumbling frescoes of Italy and the cool soft light of European winter.

The works use wax, egg tempera and pigments to create atmospheric abstractions, forming part of an ongoing investigation into the nature of such organic and time honoured materials.

Sara Freeman completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honors in Printmedia and Drawing at ANU School of Art in 2006 and would like to gratefully acknowledge the Kulturforderung, Kanton Graubunden, for the opportunity to complete the residency in Switzerland.
