A solo exhibition of semi figurative paintings that respond to scenes from cinema that have entered the collective consciousness.

Like shared memories, there is a point where certain films feel so familiar we might almost have lived them. In many ways they have shaped our lives as we hope to live them. These are the moments in life that we feel we have all been promised - familiar, resonant and important, yet intangible and ephemeral. They feel like a promise, with an expectation of experiences that will make sense of our own trajectories. They make life worthwhile and are part of a human condition, without which our own lives feel poorer. Yet, the promise is just that, something to search for, something on the horizon. Films by directors like Terence Mallick and David Lynch can feel real. Likewise, Daniel Freaker’s paintings, with their evocative use of light and colour, feel alive and part of our shared stories.

Artist ( Description ): 

Daniel Freaker lives and works in Portsmouth, U.K. He received his MFA from the Slade School of Art in London in 2000, where he explored the painterly qualities of print, video, film and photography and his paintings are reminiscent of film scenes and fragments of a broader narrative. Since studying, his work has evolved through practicing as an artist and lecturing across art, design and media. He has exhibited regularly including frequent group shows and solo shows at Oxmarket Contemporary in Chichester and Noon Powell gallery in London.

Other Info: 

The exhibition is accompanied by an artist’s talk and free workshop. Sat 1 October. All welcome. RSVP if possible for numbers.

2-3pm Artist Talk: Daniel Freaker will introduce the inspiration for his practice, focusing on the ideas of visceral experience and narrative that charge the paintings.

3-4pm Artist Workshop: for those wanting to explore ideas of storytelling across any artistic practice, Daniel Freaker will facilitate a practical exercise in developing story lines through images based on many years of teaching art and moving image.
