“Brown paper packages tied up with string . . . “
In collaboration with Fego Sunningdale, local photographer Alex Freeman presents a few of her favourite things.
On the walls of Alex’s studio hang a selection of eclectic items – some inherited, some reclaimed, all of aesthetic beauty, many of sentimental value. She is drawn to raw and exposed materials, to objects that are worn and weathered, much used and much loved. Her photographs of these objects reflect her eye for natural beauty and her ability to celebrate the everyday ordinary.
Fego Sunningdale currently hosts a selection of Alex Freeman’s work – all of which are for sale, some in two dimension with prints available, others in three dimension sold as unique works along with the original objets d’art. Each priced individually. Prices available on request.
The exhibition features items which hold meaning and appeal to Alex – her grandfather’s Kodak Brownie, her father’s matchbox collection, classic Penguin books, an old pair of specs and a vintage typewriter amongst other things sourced at antiques markets.
Alex’s work is both simple and sophisticated, understated and impactful. She as a photographer is much the same: quiet, observant and unassuming while personable and able to pack a visual punch.
When sat with a coffee or feasting on Fego food, why not consider your favourite things and commission Alex to create a unique image or 3D art work to celebrate an object, mark an occasion or remember someone by?
We look forward to welcoming you in Sunningdale. Alternatively, feel free to contact Alex directly on 07825 279053
