Working in sculpture and drawing and digital media, Paul Freeman’s art practice focuses on the tensions that are emerging with respect to new genetic technologies, and what appears to be the dissolving boundaries between genders, species and life forms. His exhibition in the RBC New Works Gallery will feature 2 life-size casts of stags, whose antlers seem to have turned against them, as they emerge from their bodies like the branches of trees. In these works, Freeman uses one of the most traditional sculptural methods, metal casting, and a centuries old trope, the majestic wild animal sculpture, to create works that speak to a future of variation, hybridity and potential mutation.

Visual artist, Paul Freeman is the Artistic Director at the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts, an art centre for artists with developmental disabilities in Edmonton and a drawing instructor at the University of Alberta in the Department of Art and Design. Freeman, received his BFA from the AlbertaCollege of Art & Design (Calgary) in 1998, and an MFA from the University of Alberta (Edmonton) in 2005. He is the recipient of numerous Academic awards Scholarships and Grants, and his work has been exhibited in public and private spaces across Canada.
