Valerie Freeman Painter, Ceramist
mixed media on canvas Walls throughout the history of mankind, are used for security and protection and often become vehicles for creative expression and communication. For me, “Mending the Divide” is our spiritual connection for mending/healing via the divine through prayer and communication with God. Thus, the joints between the spaces of rocks at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem are used to place prayers. As you reflect on this piece of the wall, please enter a prayer in your thoughts as you find a space to enter your prayer. This series of paintings have been commissioned and placed in chapels/temples throughout the world.
Inspired by life and her world travels, Valerie Freeman has an organic expressive approach to creating her artworks in ceramics and painting. She has developed her own lustre glazes for her one fire ceramic works. Freeman earned her BFA from Pratt Institute and is a recipient of prestigious awards and commissions including the Municipal Arts Society of NYC and the Ford Foundation. She also curates exhibitions and teaches workshops. Her works are collected and exhibited internationally.
