Reception & Artist Talk | McArthur Freeman: Finding Form


Feb 23 2023


Gallery114@HCC Ybor City Campus

The Hillsborough Community College Art Galleries is proud to present Finding Form, an exhibition of work by McArthur Freeman. This exhibition will be on display January 9 – February 23, 2023 at Gallery114@HCC Ybor City Campus.

McArthur Freeman’s practice explores how identity construction and hybridity are visually generated. The artworks in Finding Form at Gallery114@HCC consist of globular, amorphous forms spliced together and given organic features. The strange mutations suggest familiarity while simultaneously collapsing into abstraction, proposing the breakdown and reformation of new identities. Freeman’s work begins as speculative drawing—a term coined by the artist to express the intuitive nature of his process—and is then translated into digital sculpture, fabricated through 3D printing, and finally cast in bronze. The pseudo-scientific multi-step process allows the artist to intentionally conceive forms virtually and then physically materialize them in the world.


Freeman earned a BFA in Drawing and Painting from the University of Florida, an MFA from Cornell University with a concentration in Painting, and a Master of Art and Design from North Carolina State University in Animation and New Media. Freeman is the recipient of the prestigious McKnight Junior Faculty Fellowship from the Florida Education Fund.
