Octavia Art Gallery is pleased to present Artist Spaces: Close to Home with work by Tina Freeman. The exhibition is held in conjunction with the 8th Edition of PhotoNOLA, an annual celebration of photography in New Orleans.
Tina Freeman is an established photographer of architecture, landscape, portraits, and interiors. Her series, Artist Spaces: Close to Home, which will be on view, highlights the homes of New Orleans artists. Few artists have the luxury of separate spaces, and life and work is often compressed into one singular “personal environment”. This seamless life of the artist interests Freeman and with these works, she poetically captures an intensely personal portrayal of the artists and their spaces. The artists Freeman selected to photograph utilize a variety of media and their artwork is stylistically disparate and unique. Often, each artist’s style is similarly reflected in the quality, character and aesthetic of their live/work environments, thereby illustrating just how deeply personal, all-encompassing and connected artists are to their work.
Freeman was born in New Orleans, Louisiana and continues to live and work in New Orleans. She has exhibited nationally and her work is included in notable private and public collections, including the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Historic New Orleans Collection, and the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.
