Freddie Ardley’s Highlights of 2014 (So-Far)

Here is a look back at some of my favourite artwork that I have had the fortune of photographing and creating in 2014. 

They are in no particular order, and are of a wide variety of genres, but it is very satisfying to look back at a years worth of work and notice similarities and nuances that have carried across in a ‘style’. 

Some of these can still be purchased as limited edition prints at: ArtFinder.com/freddieardley

I’m almost never serious, and I’m always too serious. Too deep, too shallow. Too sensitive, too cold hearted. I’m like a collection of paradoxes.


“So you’re made of detritus [from exploded stars]. Get over it. Or better yet, celebrate it. After all, what nobler thought can one cherish than that the universe lives within us all?”

―Neil deGrasse Tyson
