About June

June Frickleton is a Scottish artist based in the South of England. She uses a personal vocabulary to create sumptuous abstract paintings that deal with pure colour and form. The paintings have a strong visual impact that is heightened by the use of a reduced palette.

 

The recent paintings have become more concerned with the process of painting, the surfaces are stained, with numerous washes of paint applied to create layers. The paintings are often worked on the floor where pools of paint are applied. Although the paint can be guided it cannot be completely controlled so there is often a serendipitous discovery in the final outcome, unsuccessful layers are washed away and reapplied, the process of making a single painting can take days or weeks.

 

After graduating with a BA(Hons) from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee, June won a Hungarian Government Scholarship to study for a year at the Academy of Fine Art in Budapest. She then completed an MA in European in Art in Barcelona and Winchester through Winchester College of Art before going on to complete a Certificate in Arts Management at Sussex University and a City in Guild in Adult Education Teaching at City College, Brighton.

June is represented in the UK by the McNeill gallery, www.mcneillgallery.com
