Marley Freeman


acrylic on linen
16 x 14 x 2 inches

Existing in the potent space between abstraction and representation, Marley Freeman’s painterly language consists primarily of layered brushstrokes of carefully calibrated colors. She paints on a gesso ground of her own making that is at times a chalky, off-white color, seen here in It’s Wolf Talk. The loose composition of shapes floats above the surface in shifting strata of color that coalesce and disperse as if fluctuating in the realm of memory. Freeman’s work has been shown at galleries in the US and Germany, and has been included in group exhibitions at MoMA and White Columns, both in New York.
