Daniel Freaker - Between Us
"The tethering of entities, the deepest of intimate connections, the bonds that are made, the synergy of being. Relationships are subtly and quietly formed, over time the connection becomes part of us. No longer alone, we are stronger yet also profoundly more vulnerable.
This body of work explores that connection between us, its ability to have a very physical impact on us, while it remains intangible. Through images that help us consider relationships in different ways, intimate relationships, friendships or parent and child, the sense of connection or absence of connection is omnipresent.
The colours, textures and images hint at the profound power and intensity of our need for connection: the brightness and saturation supporting an experience of the influence of emotions: the depth of layering hinting at the complexity these relationships bring: the fluidity, mistakes, gestures and abstraction within the work attempting to frame the chaos and uncontrollability of changes and dynamics taking place between us."
