Ones to Watch: Rina Freiberg

BOLD BRUSHWORK, HARD LINES AND QUIRKY ETCHINGS MADE RINA FREIBERG’S WORK A KNOCK-OUT AT SYDNEY’S THE OTHER ART FAIR, WHERE WE DISCOVERED HER.

The wild expressionist faces and vibrant abstracts of artist Rina Freiberg are a translation of emotion and a playful disassemblage of human interaction. Born in Hong Kong and raised in Perth, Rina’s process is anchored in the unplanned. The now Sydney-based artist’s work is held in private collections across Australia, Spain and the UK. Several large-scale paintings and com- missioned murals can be seen in venues across Sydney.
