Babylon Dreaming by Marc Freeman

Empire Promises by Marc Freeman

I’m loving these vibrant, oversized and intensely abstract new paintings by young Melbourne artist Marc Freeman.  They’re so full of buzzing energy… there’s something almost psychadelic going on here!

Marc Freeman works from a studio  at The Shakespeare Grove Studios in St Kilda, also known as ‘The Veg Out Studios’ in the St Kilda community gardens.  He graduated from RMIT In 2004 with a Bachelor of Fine Art, and undertook a residency at the School Of Visual Art in NYC in 2005.  Since then Marc’s star has been on the rise – he’s been included in many group shows and has been shortlisted in the Metro Gallery Art Prize, the Baker-Ranch Contemporary Prize and the Williams Town Contemporary Art Prize.  Marc was lucky to gain representation by the Nellie Castan Gallery earlier this year.

The works you see here form part of Marc’s current solo show From on High at Nellie Castan Gallery in South Yarra, which ends December 17th.  Check it out people.

    I love them! Thanks for sharing this great find Lucy. I have an interior design client here in Melbourne with some walls that are just begging for some oversized, colorful art…and these might just fit the bill. What a great find.

    hmmm, not everyone’s cup of tea to be sure! Although I do appreciate his luminous colours, and how he has put the colours together to make them fresh & vibrant
