Frea Buckler studied Fine Art at Central St Martins, London. Later, she went on to pass her Master’s degree in Printmaking with Distinction at UWE in Bristol and has been practicing her freestyle methodology in sculpture, wallpainting and screenprint since graduating.
Frea Buckler retains the precision and technique of screen printing but adopts an improvisational method more like drawing or painting to produce stunning one-off prints. This process embraces the balance between chaos and control; which she says is memetic to her sightings during her travels in her twenties. 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. As an artist she thrives on the spontaneity of improvisation which is reflected in her work.
Frea has been selected twice, in 2014 and 2016, for the prestigious Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. She has also worked on a large commission for Facebook and other public art projects.
