"Recollections" Featuring the Work of James Frey Opens Today

Art Elements is thrilled to announce the opening of our new show - Recollections 

featuring the abstract paintings of artist James Frey. 

Recollections No. 3 by James Frey, 48x48"

Recollections will be open from April 21st - June 18th with an opening reception on the evening of April 29th from 5-7 pm 

A little more about the artist:

James Frey began taking and developing his own photos at the age of 12. Three years later, he had begun working as a newspaper photojournalist and by the age of 16 became, at the time, the youngest recipient to receive an award from the California newspaper association for his work. He continued to work as a photojournalist in order to pay his way through college at the University of California, Berkeley and then later in graduate school at the University of Arizona.

 In his late twenties, Frey turned to painting and developed a passion for abstract expressionist works. His paintings of rich, deep hues and vibrant contrasts create a powerful sense of color, shape and energy. In order to create a greater tactile quality, at times Frey will even incorporate vine cuttings and vineyard soils into a piece.

Recollections No. 6, James Frey, 48x36"

Frey's works are heavily influenced by his other passion, owner and winemaker for Trisaetum Winery. Whether it's the  elements that create exceptional vineyards, or the kinetic energy of crush, Frey's works are clearly inspired by what goes on in the vineyard and in the winery. 

Frey's studio is adjunct to his home on his family's Coast Range vineyard, where he lives with his wife Andrea, son Tristen, and daughter Tatum. His paintings and photography have been published and purchased by collectors and corporations throughout the world.
