Naomi Frears

Beaux Arts London
48 Maddox St
Mayfair
London
W1S 1AY

24 October to 30 November 2019 


Naomi Frears is a visual artist and filmmaker based in the Porthmeor Studios in St Ives, previously occupied by Frances Bacon. In her upcoming show Frears depicts a variety of enigmatic human forms, that simultaneously confront the viewer and appear lost in their own worlds. The vast space gives no indication of any concrete context, but possesses a certain depth that pulls the viewer in. 

 Frears sometimes describes her works as love letters, though she is not always sure to whom they are addressed. Continuously re-worked, each painting can take Frears years to complete. She describes the process of painting as ‘choosing every day to be completely lost – often happy lost.’ Frequently changing the apparent subject of a painting, Frears uses an editing process similar to that of film, framing, moving, removing and introducing new elements with paint. As a result the painting often has shadows or ghosts of previous ideas, figures, and structures visible within the painting.
