Zac Freeman Transforms Junk into Artwork



Zac Freeman started creating assemblage artworks of this type in 1999. All artworks are made entirely out of collected junk, found objects, and general trash. By glueing the bits of junk to a wooden substrate, Zac is able to form an image, usually faces, which only can be seen at a distance. This stunning concept is quite the time consumer.

I was interested in communicating through visual representation in apparent 2-dimensional space and through the actual objects used for the medium in 3-dimensional space. – Zac Freeman

It is very important that he incorporate the actual objects into the art as opposed to a picture or rendition of it because it better expresses the intention of the artwork. Freeman feels the junk is more powerful being present. It is an actual thing to be reckoned with that existed in this time and place and carries energy in and of itself. We hope you will enjoy this short but sweet collection!

    It would be really useful a video where it can be watched the process of creation one of those wonderful portraits…something like a speed painting..;-D)

  5. These works were interesting as they reminded me of two artists, mainly of Chuck Close who has been doing systematized portraits since the 60s and in part to the fabulous Kurt Schwitters of Germany and Norway and his wonderful art trash paintings, sculptures and other works. The repeated bottle caps (?) in Zac’s work reminded me specifically of the concentric circular rings of color making up the image markings for Close more recent paintings and, oddly, as I was trying to watch a television show last night I was observing both pixellation of the image, duplication of images with posterization of one image atop an unrelated image and horizontal and vertical bands of color, almost like the movement bands we can see in MOndrian. What a weird trip vision is!
