Paintings from Robert Freeman's current work, will be on exhibit in his New Works show at the Adelson Galleries in Boston, MA from November 4 – December 16, 2016. Paintings on display include:
“The Sundowners,” installed as an altarpiece that allows the viewer to walk among the couples dancing at nightfall. The viewer might question, are they inviting me to join in? Or being exclusive?
“Ashanti Gold,” a celebration of African American culture; it was like painting a technicolor dream from my childhood. An impressionistic style and application of gold leaf enlivens the figures. As Ashanti leaders adorn themselves with golden rings, bracelets and amulets, so do African Americans. Gold still holds its place as a symbol of wealth and success, and represents purity, value, royalty, wisdom and goodness.
