Artist Spotlight: Al Freeman

With her larger-than-life puffy pleather reproductions, Brooklyn-based artist Al Freeman imbues otherwise banal everyday items with a witty sense of humor. Poking fun at gender norms and consumerism, she challenges the virility of traditionally masculine objects by presenting them as partially-deflated. Al Freeman received a BFA in 2005 from Concordia University in Montréal and an MFA in 2010 from Yale University. She is represented by 56 Henry.
