Dana Freeman

Grand Rapids, MI, United States

My work is concept-driven, a response to my experiences and dreams. I select materials that inherently take on a metaphorical meaning for a specific work, for example eggshells in exploring cycles of life, ant farms in looking at a personal work ethic, sculpted bread as an expression of domestic art, cast sand to speak about the Aboriginal Walkabout and glass for the space between the conscious and unconscious. The final work may take the form of sculpture, video, photography, or installation. I hope that by using materials unusually I can find a fresh expression for my experiences and ideas and create a lasting impression for the viewer. Dana Freeman came to Grand Rapids in 1993 to teach at Aquinas College where she is an Professor of Art, teaching photography, new forms and directing the Aquinas Art & Music Center Gallery.
