About the art
This piece is part of a series titled "Covers", it pays homage to the graphic style of album covers, paperback book covers and media that permeated mid-century popular culture.
Her use of singular color accentuates the interplay of ground, foreground relationships. Freeman tries to merge random gestures and idiosyncratic shapes with a controlled and reductive abstract language.
Aquatint is an intaglio printmaking technique, a variant of etching, using copper plates dipped in acid to hold ink. The traditional fine art printing process accentuates the rich saturation of color on paper. The series merges the quality and feel of traditional fine art prints with the low tech graphics of mid-century media.
Covers 3 Red was chosen to be in the International Print Center New York’s 2017 summer show, The juror was Katherine Bradford. The series was awarded Curators Choice at The 2017, Annual Fine Print Fair at the Cleveland Museum of Art. The juror was Michael Bennett, curator of Ancient Greek and Roman Art, (and jazz lover).
