Wendy Freestone

Sculptor

Biography

Wendy’s work explores themes of family and home, concepts of memory and moment, more recently in observation.

She works in a variety of materials, currently mainly in cast bronze using the lost wax process, but also in aluminium, gold and silver plate. Each body of work frequently consists of multiple pieces and sometimes in a range of materials. For the first time she has introduced colour to her figures. Understanding Grapheme-colour synesthesia in which an individual’s perception of letters is associated with a colour, Wendy has taken this idea to create a coloured alphabet and in turn used this theme in her sculptural figurative pieces. Each piece of artwork that has the use of colour spray onto the figure also has a message within the work.

Though her current work is of small scale, in the recent past Wendy has created much larger scale commissions, including an abstract sculpture with huge stones in balance for a Milton Keynes business, as well as life-sized bronze figures for a garden designer in the Cotswolds.
