Tom Freeman alternates approaches in his work to encourage a transformative translation between 2D and 3D processes. Building upon abstract forms, marks and processes, the work reflects a whole gamut of conscious and unconscious forces. Sculptural works utilise home craft practices, with a particular affection for ceramics and tactile materials, while other works incorporate pencil, ink, watercolour, acrylic, oil and enamel paints on board, canvas, paper and other surfaces.
‘I make marks on the land I walk on and it makes marks on me. I retraced paths I used to walk, repeated journeys and trips from my childhood. Routes and directions turn into layered lines and colours of memories. The details are lost but the feelings hold strong.’
