Marley Freeman (b. 1981 in Boston, MA, lives between New York City and Massachusetts) is known for her intimate abstractions in oil and acrylic on linen and canvas. Often made over long stretches of time, her paintings glow with a multitude of colors in varying layers of opacity and luster, exhibiting the artist’s deep sensitivity to the tiniest measurements of form and tonality. In dialogue with the history of textiles, Freeman’s psychologically charged canvases can be seen to mine the delicate intricacies of warp and weft to achieve carefully balanced compositions that reward sustained looking.

Recent solo exhibitions include those held at Parker Gallery, Los Angeles, CA (2023); Karma, New York (2022); Travesía Cuatro, Guadalajara, Mexico (2021); Parker Gallery, Los Angeles (2020); Karma, New York (2019); and Janice Guy at MBnb, New York (2018).
