London Air: Acrylics on Canvas

candy london
This September artist Antonio Romeo takes us on a journey of discovery as he guides us through nine months in the British capital with his exhibition “London Air”.  Arriving in January of this year, Romeo shows us his London: a city filled with mystery, fantasy, magic and excitement.  Working on canvass with a vibrant acrylic pallet, Romeo offers a peek into a dreamlike world where the fantastical and superhuman find life in the everyday.  As monsters curl around buildings and big red London busses march like machines, Romeo captures the essence of a city unknown in all its enthralling, alien glory, reminding us that there is something quite magical in this metropolis – sometimes it just takes a little imagination to see – or rediscover – it.
London Air is Romeo’s first UK exhibition and we will be proudly housed at Freud London until the last Sunday of September.

Covent Garden Continued…

As we glide into the second week of August, we cross the half way point of photographer Nigel Dicker’s beautiful tribute to one of London’s most beloved landmarks, Covent Garden, currently on show at Freud London.  In the spirit of continued celebration, as the local festival unfolds, we thought there no better time to bring news of a new local broadcasting channel, Covent Garden Broadcast Media, soon to grace our online airways.  Telling tales of those whose lives have been touched by the market’s past and present, the channel will trace the history of Covent Garden’s celebrated attractions – the Market, Opera, Ballet and Social History Archive – to unearth all that makes this beloved central hotspot what it is today.

‘It’s vitally important to remember what Covent Garden looked like in its previous life’ – Michael Palin, 2014

So if you have not already, why not come and explore Covent Garden for yourselves.  A retrospective of the Old Market can be enjoyed here at Freud until 30th August. With the holidays in full swing, it seems the perfect moment to pop over and enjoy it with a cocktail (or coffee!) before nipping down Neil Street to join in the fun.  And to add to the excitement, Freud is offering 50p ‘babyccinos’ for kids until September!

The Old Covent Garden Market: A Retrospect by Nigel Dicker

The Old Covent Garden Market

As the nation’s poppies open their scarlet petals in honour of those fallen in combat a century ago, this November marks a month of double remembrance for our Capital.  On November 9th, the stroke of midnight will mark the fortieth anniversary of the close of old Covent Garden market.
In honour of this watershed moment, as the merchants packed up and headed home one last time, photographer Nigel Dicker takes us on a celebratory tour of a Covent Garden very different to the tourist hotspot of 2014.  Transporting us through the camera’s lens, Dicker drops us in 1974, and a market in its final days.  While the setting is familiar, the beautiful, bold arch of the neo-classical market building is stage to an unfamiliar scene.  Awash with plants, fresh veg and the charming greengrocer jackets of old, Dicker’s images capture the heart and soul of a traditional marketplace in swing.   As tradesmen bustle, push carts, chat and laugh, the space brims with colour and life.   And then, as we glide from canvas to canvas, a increasingly familiar picture forms, the effervescence of the images leaping forth into the present to call to mind the Covent Garden of today: energetic, noisy, alive.  Marking the beginning of the Covent Garden Festival 2014 – the first of its kind – Dicker’s collection provides not only a flashback into the not-so-distant, yet strikingly different past of central London; it offers perhaps the most elegant way of celebrating the market as it once was: by reminding us just how glorious it still is to this day.  It is a celebration of life, culture and history, and an encouragement to make the short journey down Neal Street for a stroll under the arches of this timeless landmark.  
‘The Old Covent Garden Market’ will be on show at Freud, 198 Shaftesbury Avenue, until Saturday 30th August.  All pieces are for sale – please email all enquiries to catherine@freudltd.co.uk
