Roadside Rocket I, 2007

Roadside Rocket I, 2007

Three White Walls Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition by Paul Freeman. You are cordially invited to a private viewing on Thursday 4th February. We are having this second private view because snow prevented most people attending the first one. To celebrate the thaw, a space themed cocktail will be served at the event. The exhibition runs until 15th February 2010.

Space Lands is the result of a project executed between 2007 and 2009 in the southwest states of the USA.

Freeman was drawn to New Mexico in 2007 when he heard of an ambitious plan by Sir Richard Branson to launch a space tourist business from a spaceport in the New Mexico desert. This initial visit meant that the artist developed a fascination with the region and its people, influencing him to return many times.

Space Lands incorporates pictures of artifacts from the ‘first space age’ which ended with the Apollo landings, and the remnants of the space and missile tourism that accompanied this period. It also contains photographs of the landscapes and early development of ‘Spaceport America’ which is currently under construction, and portraits of the local people who are connected to the past and future of space exploration.
