Carole Freeman is an American and Canadian contemporary figurative artist known for evocative portraits and narrative paintings of cultural, social, political, and personal significance. The subjects of her pictures are intensely rendered with a distinctive intimacy, whether they are celebrities, artists, historical or newsworthy figures, family, friends, or strangers.
Freeman works from both life and varied source material such as personal and found photographs, film stills, mass media images, or famous artworks. Her paintings, produced with gestural brush marks and a command of drawing, are processed through close observation and an instinctual understanding of the time in which she lives.
Freeman currently lives and works in Toronto, Canada.
