June Frickleton uses a personal vocabulary to create sumptuous paintings with a strong visual impact heightened by the use of a reduced palette. They are created over a long period of time using a mixture of brush marks and thinned down oil paint washes. She often works on the floor, pouring thinned paint in a controlled manner on the canvas, then using washes of turpentine to stain the canvas, building these stains up in layers until the desired image emerges.
The paintings and drawings on show were made in response to a visit to Þingvellir National Park, Iceland in early 2020.
June Studied for a BA(HONS) Drawing & Painting at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and graduated in 1991, then won a British Council Scholarship to spend a Postgraduate year at The Academy of Fine Art, Budapest. Following this, she completed an MA In Barcelona and Winchester at Winchester School of Art, followed by an Arts Management Certificate from Sussex University.
As well as being a practicing artist June is Director and Chief Curator of Frickleton Fine Art, whose clients include Liberty Property Trust UK, RSM, and Cripps LLP.
