J. H. Freedman has always been fascinated the deconstruction and exploration of genres and tropes. To express his love of the nontraditional, he took up drawing and writing at a young age- frequently expressing his humor with the fantastic through comics and animation. He better realized his talents through SUNY Alfred in western New York, where he explored a wide variety of disciplines and mediums.
By the time he graduated, he discovered an identity of utilizing an analogue aesthetic through digital techniques which can be seen in the animation “Another Man’s Treasure” and the illustration collection “pages." Lately he’s been experimenting with limited pallets: particularly monotone and duotone. Through reconstructing traditional style in the digital age, he hopes to capture beauty we take for granted in both the gallery and the screen through his distinct atmosphere of deliberate imperfection.
