FREA BUCKLER: PARADE

The new collection of 24 unique paintings on aluminium

This new collection of original works from Frea Buckler marks a significant evolution in colour palette, medium, and technique, whilst staying true to her signature style and ethos. Drawing on experiences of isolation, which fostered a state of slowness and brought minute detail into focus, Frea has worked to resist the dynamism of her usual spontaneous and fast-paced screenprinting method, whilst still retaining a sense of intuition.
Drawn to the utilitarian nature of aluminium as a surface, Frea fuses the processes of printmaking and painting, using the screen as a stencil through which she gently pushes the paint. Each piece in the collection is born out of a series of slow moves and contemplation.
Working on multiple pieces at once, she views the pieces as separate entities coming together to form a whole, capturing both the disparate aspects of her experience as well as a pertinent sense of togetherness, inspiring the title ‘Parade’. Honouring her vision of displaying the paintings in one long parade-like line, we decided to hang the works and create an exclusive film in celebration of the new collection directed & edited by Nick Scott Films.
