Eric Freeman

A color field painter with a clear nod to the New York School tradition, Eric Freeman reconfigures the metaphysical qualities of abstract painting for today’s contemporary age. Freeman’s work is a reductive technique where luminescent geometric forms — often reminiscent of modern technologies such as plasma screens and video games — swell and recede in illusionary space. Assertive, yet contemplative, Freeman’s work draws comparison to abstract painters such as Mark Rothko, Ellsworth Kelly, Frank Stella, and Joseph Albers.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, 1970, Eric Freeman received a B.F.A. and M.A. from Tufts University, Boston, MA. Freeman has received numerous solo exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe, and has been featured in publications including the New York Times Magazine, Vanity Fair, and Art in America. He lives and works in New York.
