Alex Polizzi - The Fixer Cat Hepple & The Tetley
The culmination of months of work presented it’s self in the form of a business launch at The Tetley a centre for contemporary art and learning located in the stunning art deco headquarters of the former Tetley Brewery in central Leeds.
On hand were the photographic talents of Cat Hepple a fine art wedding and boudoir photographer who beautifully captured the buzz and excitement of the launch in her stunning images.
The Tetley was a perfect backdrop to our launch and the pieces we had created. No messy backgrounds, no coloured walls jumping out, just the simplicity of the white walled space for our stand alone pieces.
I chose to create corporate based décor which I was very nerves about. Not particularly because of the pieces on show but because I wasn’t sure what Alex Polizzi was expecting. My brief was simply to decorate for the launch. I had already created wedding and party décor and didn’t want to limit myself to that type of event. I love the corporate world of décor. That’s where your thoughts and inspirations are let loose and you just never know what visions will pop into your mind, exciting.
I was able to use a piece of art very dear to me. A bird table … well that’s what my Dad called it once he had made it and presented it to my brother as a wedding gift. The ‘Bird Table’ obviously housed le crème de la crème of birds as it is as ornate as any Japanese house I have seen. Cat Hepples images of the ‘Bird Table’ are ones I will treasure.
