Using the silkscreen process as a tool for drawing, Frea Buckler makes unplanned, improvised, unique printed works on paper, retaining the precision and technique of screen-printing but following intuition. Selecting colours and shapes instinctively as a starting point, the artist works quickly, responding to what has gone before.
“I negotiate a space between chaos and control to produce abstract prints that resemble unfolded boxes or origami bending, folding and opening out in different directions.”
Buckler plays with illusion and perception. The images can look 3-dimensional but are flat, they have the potential to be one thing but are not. They aim to be visual representations of our processes and reflect on behaviours as individuals and as a society, rather than objects.
