Furriner, an exhibition of work by Alastair Horner

AS a furriner – foreigner in the Norfolk dialect – Alasdair Horner from Harleston is bringing images of this locality and further afield to Bungay in an exhibition. The exhibition, entitled Furriner opened at the Gallery in the Fisher Theatre, Bungay, on September 11th and runs until October 6th and features photographs taken locally and from his travels around the world, but all with an added personal twist.

Although Alasdair works with a camera he prefers to be called an artist not a photographer. He explains: “I need a photograph to get started but then I take it back to the computer to create the image I want.”

Texture, shape and colour influence his work not making precise, representational images. He takes his inspiration from the world around him, taking photographs then converting them into artworks.

“I love the light and the skies around here,” he said.

This is his first solo exhibition though he has taken part in group shows in Kent.

Entry to Furriner, an exhibition of work by Alastair Horner, at The Gallery, Fisher Theatre, 10 Broad Street, Bungay, is free. It can usually be viewed between 10am and 3pm Monday to Saturday, and again from 6pm on show nights, but please phone the Fisher on 01986 897130 before travelling as the Gallery is occasionally closed for meetings.
