Frea BucklerShop prints
Frea studied Fine Art, Printmaking at Central Saint Martins in London and more recently passed her Masters degree with Distinction in Print at UWE in Bristol.
Frea’s latest work retains the precision and technique of screenprinting but adopts an improvisational method more like drawing or painting to produce series’ of unique prints. This process embraces the balance between chaos and control.
The probable but impossible forms resemble unfolded boxes or origami – bending, folding and opening out in different directions. They play with illusion and perception, they fit and don’t fit, there are loose ends and spaces in between. They are visual representations of our processes and behaviours, such as poise and balance, rather than objects.
She has been commissioned for projects by organisations including Facebook, Ginkgo Projects and Denver Art Museum. Her work is held in collections at the University of Warwick, Trinity College Dublin and The National Archives of Ireland.
