 ART TALK: Ghislaine  Fremaux

,

Friday, Janurary 6: 5:30 pm
Free to Public

Come/Apart is a powerful exhibition featuring oversized, intensely colored nudes. The figures are often drawn across several sheets of paper collaged together into sprawling, irregularly shaped works of art, some measuring up to 10 feet in width. A master at depicting the human form, Fremaux captures her subjects in intimate postures and situations. “My drawings examine the face-to-face, wherein the closeness and remoteness of the other are acutely felt.” Come/Apart is a contemporary approach to the traditional, academic practice of figure drawing.

Ghislaine Fremaux (b. 1986, Washington, DC) is Assistant Professor of Art in the discipline of Painting at Texas Tech University. She holds her MFA from the Pennsylvania State University, conferred in 2012, and her BFA from Tufts University with SMFA, Boston. Her work has notably shown in the Nicaraguan Biennial 2014, the 2014 Biennial of the Central American Isthmus, and numerous juried exhibitions nationwide

Tramel has exhibited her work in numerous competitions and curated exhibitions all over the US, including several solo exhibtions in Houston. “Trophies for Girlhood” is a series of sculptures constructed from found objects, glue, acrylic and gel medium so thick it looks like melting wax.
