Freddie, in her own words

These collages and paintings are from some kind of alternate reality. A place where things are a little different, but also a lot the same.

This work is my response to the onslaught of imagery passing though my conscious and subconscious. My task is to create paintings with connections and pathways, allowing for a variety of interpretations.

I work intuitively and rhythmically. Laying down a barrage of random shapes, colours and values. I filter, edit, dress up, dress down, acknowledge and tune out. This process is a visual enactment of what we all do on a daily basis.

Stepping back, I see the figures, fauna, architecture, interiors, exteriors, urban, rural and extra-terrestrial landscapes central to my imagination.
