Freya Grand paints the land and the sea like nature’s true confidant. Her paintings rush towards us with immense power portraying earth’s forms whether solid or liquid. Even the ghosts of her subjects in the distance are mighty in their placement, like veiled sentries.  Although we are immediately presented with imagery large and strong, the artist takes great care to have us investigate her work slowly and at close range  where we examine the spray of water, the arid crumble of rocky terrain, mist as myst and other phenomenon that evaporate and disappear into the unknown.

In the month of March a collection of Freya Grand’s stunning landscapes and seascapes of Ireland, the Galapagos Islands, Peru and Iceland will undoubtedly stir each guest as the walls of Neptune hold her memories of the enigmatic earth.
