Frea Buckler

B

old uses of colour and shape act as a starting point to Frea Buckler’s artworks, which resemble unfolded boxes or origami as they open out in different directions, playing with illusion and perception.

Buckler’s geometric forms are instinctively chosen without preliminary drawings. She works quickly; responding to what has gone before while embracing a balance between chaos and control. A desire to get as close to the process as possible has seen the artist rejecting digital reproduction methods, instead using screen-

printing techniques to produce one-off images on paper. Having studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins in London, Buckler passed her Masters degree with Distinction at UWE in Bristol, where she continues to live and work. She has exhibited nationally including a solo show at Jealous Gallery, London, curated by Smithson Gallery, and has twice been selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Her commissions include a large scale work for Facebook, and other public art projects. freabuckler.com freabuckler@hotmail.com
