Rebecca Freeman (b. 1985, Essex, UK) investigates narrative, working predominantly with drawing, print and silhouette cut-outs, alongside ceramic and installation. Her interest is in pulling at the threads of thickly embroidered fairy tales and fiction to create work that reflects her fascination with the immeasurable capacity for storytelling as a tool to entertain, teach, record, comfort and deceive.

Adam Fine (b. 1983, Texas, USA) has worked primarily in drawing and the moving image—both with projected video and video installation. Thematically his work concerns the transience of Love as an emotion and its various physical realisations.

In collaborating with Rebecca Freeman, Fine has used the opportunity to work with film rather than digital video, utilising the photo-chemical process as a synthesis between the stillness of the tangible mark and the illusion of movement through its sequential projection.

As a collaborative pair, they are able to realise visions otherwise unattainable when limited to their respective skills. Their shared love of narrative and the eccentric allows them to draw their ideas together, if not seamlessly, then harmoniously.
