Anne von Freyburg in Skin Deep, James Freeman Gallery, London (13 May-5 June 2021)

Anne von Freyburg (Unit 0, Studio 0-116) is exhibiting new work in Skin Deep, a two person exhibition with Nigel Grimmer using portraiture and textiles to look at how ideas of beauty are fabricated.

"Anne von Freyburg reconstructs Rococo portraits in stitched fabric and at a grand scale. Her imagery focuses on a stylised idea of feminine beauty as found in the tradition of Boucher and Fragonard. Appropriated portraits are recreated in ink and acrylic and then embellished by hand-stitching diverse fabrics to build up a visual feast with almost bodily presence." - text courtesy James Freeman Gallery
