Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Toadflax, woundwort, goat’s-beard, viper's bugloss: the names read like a 16th Century Herbal. But if you’re looking for our native wildflowers you might struggle to find them in the countryside, where intensive methods can leave little habitat. Instead, turn your attention to the verges alongside our road network. There you will find these plants from a lost bucolic era, now thriving undisturbed on roundabouts, along slip-roads and in litter strewn lay-bys.
Nessie Ramm is on a mission to paint the road verges of Britain in exquisite detail on to metal road signs; to render visible the wildness and value of these unloved spaces. Her work is a call to re-evaluate our relationship with the natural world.
You must not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit any works. In doing so, you endanger our relationships with artists, and directly jeopardise the charitable work we do.
PLEASE DO NOT BID ON ARTWORK IN OUR ART ON A POSTCARD AUCTIONS IF YOU INTEND ON SELLING THE ARTWORK AFTER YOU HAVE PURCHASED IT. THIS AUCTION HAS BEEN ORGANISED FOR CHARITY AND ALL ARTWORKS HAVE BEEN GENEROUSLY DONATED BY THE ARTISTS TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE HEPATITIS C TRUST. WHEN THE WORK PRODUCED FOR THE CHARITY IS SOLD ON THE SECONDARY MARKET IT DAMAGES OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ARTIST AND PREVENTS US FROM FUNDRAISING.
