Naomi Frears is based in the Porthmeor Studios in St Ives.
From winning the Printmaking Prize on graduating to being a founding member of Porthmeor Print Workshop, printmaking has always been central to her practice.
Working most often with monoprinting (one off prints of multiple layers) and drypoints her imagery incorporates androgynous figures, ambiguous gestures, fictitious landscapes and disembodied dialogues.
Her works juxtapose personal encounters with visual material drawn from cinema, fashion media, domestic interiors and landscaped locations.
Recent and upcoming exhibitions include: Somebody Loves Us All, Bold Tendencies, London. New Paintings, Beaux Arts London. Men Falling, Exeter Phoenix. Mariner, John Hansard Gallery, Southampton.
Her work regularly appears on the cover of the London Review Of Books.
