Freya Jobbins, is a South West Sydney based sculptor and print maker, she is predominantly a sculptor but continues to produce prints. Her printmaking practice focuses on contemporary social commentary through monotone linocuts and woodcuts based on the human experience.
Freya’s work under series “Assemblages & Sculptures” include creation of humanoid busts and portraits using a very non-traditional material, discarded children’s toys. An artistic exploration, of the relationship between consumerism and the culture of up-cycling and recycling.
Freya Jobbins is more keen in generating a range of responses to existing cultural objects, which have been placed out of context. The irony of her plastic works is that she takes a material that was created to be touched, and I make it untouchable as an artwork.”
Both Freya’s prints and sculptures have been exhibited and held in collections Australia wide, and in England, Norway, Germany, Dubai, New York, San Francisco and Tel-Aviv.
