Small Time is a massed collection of Tom Freeman’s artworks, created over the past three years. Individually, they are playful and exploratory material studies. Collectively, they are an interrelated body of work, presenting an obsessive fascination with same form in many different ways.

Through mixed media sculptures, photographs, paintings and drawing on paper, Small Time follows the artist’s creative process, allowing material play to inform new approaches and ideas. Textures, patterns, and materials weave into one another. From abstract shapes come figures and faces, from organic materials come playful, synthetic colours.

With references to self-portraiture, childhood memories, crass humour, frustrated abstraction and lively crafting, the works present a diverse and fun insight into an artist’s creative mind at work.

About the artist

Tom Freeman was born in Margaret River, WA in 1985, and now lives and works in Fremantle. His diverse and investigative art practice includes drawing, painting and sculpture. Upon completion of his BA (Fine Art) from Curtin University in 2007, Freeman continued and expanded his art practice through many local and national exhibitions and projects, including representation within Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, Fremantle Arts Centre and Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery as well as commercial and artist run galleries.

His works have been selected for several prestigious art awards including the Bankwest Art Prize, Albany Art Prize where he was twice Highly Commended by the judging panel, and the Joondalup Art Award where his work was acquired for their city collection. Freeman’s artworks are in both the Curtin University and University of WA collections, as well as local and national private collections.
