Freya Payne (b 1968)
Freya Payne is an accomplished printmaker, sculptor and painter. She enjoys the physicality of her materials, the animistic process of making. Her exhibitions employ the three disciplines in a choreographed space, finding completeness in the sum of multiple parts.
The artist creates work which is quiet and reflective, intimate and intricate. She champions simple form, pared-down beauty. The subjects she touches on are the stuff of everyday life; family relationships, the passage of time, searches for a slippery identity. Rich with poetry the work celebrates the small shifts, tangents and doubts that mark our experience and understanding.
