Zac Freeman graduated cum laude from his degree of Fine Arts at Jacksonville University, Florida in 1997. What might seem to be useless for others, this Florida-based artist turns into a thing of beauty. He creates artworks made entirely of collected junk, found objects, and general trash. He started collecting these materials in 1999. He glues the bits of junk to a wooden substrate to form an image, usually faces, which only can be seen at a distance. His art communicates through visual representation in apparent 2-dimensional space and through the actual objects used for the medium in 3-dimensional space. He values the importance of incorporating actual object or junk in the finished product as he believes it carries energy in itself.
Freeman’s work has been commissioned for use in commercials for Absolut Vodka. In 2010, he won the Art Chicago award and has been exhibited at major art fairs in London, Miami, Chicago, Toronto, Houston and the Hamptons, New York. To get updates on his recent works, follow him on Facebook.
