ARTIST BIOGRAPHY
Marley Freeman (b. 1981) is a New York-based artist, who draws from the combined disciplines of abstract and representational painting. Her unique facture is characterized by the hand-mixed gesso, acrylic, and oil paints she uses to create meticulous, psychologically-charged color fields. Through this technical process, she studies the ways in which paint “wants to perform.” “Pigments have their own ways of acting,” Freeman says, “and I became obsessed with learning their traits.” Freeman’s distinct vocabulary of forms is made up of brushy, intermittent strokes, color washes, and attenuated shapes that deftly consolidate the picture plane. Freeman completed her MFA at the Milton Avery Graduate School of Arts at Bard College, New York, and her BFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Recent solo exhibitions include Parker Gallery, Los Angeles (2020); Karma, New York (2019); Janice Guy at MBnb, New York (2018); PSM, Berlin (2017); and Cleopatra’s, Brooklyn (2015), among others.
