Winter Auction 2021
Episode 1: Iris Schomaker
Meet Berlin-based artist, Iris Schomaker, fresh from her show at Huxley Parlour! Iris discusses living and working in Berlin, being married to an artist, and her creative process.
"These figures are in a very private situation usually, they are not representing something, they are very often barefoot, they are in a situation where they feel sheltered, they don't have to represent something...in the end it's not about being a man or a woman, but more about being human." - Iris Schomaker, on her works
EPISODE 2: MELISSA STERN
We are in conversation with Melissa Stern, an American artist and journalist based in New York City. This summer, Melissa exhibited her 20-year retrospective show, 'Stronger than Dirt' in NYC, exploring Melissa's large range of work across different mediums.
"All of my pieces share a thematic thread. Childlike and goofy my figures live in a dream world, cower in relationships or stand tall in the face of adversity." - Melissa, on her works
EPISODE 3: CATHY TABBAKH AND THE AUCTION COLLECTIVE
Meet French contemporary artist, Cathy Tabbakh, based in the UK. Her colourful work collides imaginary forms with existing landscapes through the use of both architectural and botanical elements, she focuses on still-life and interiors.
Cathy's work is featured in Stylist and Grazia and showed works at a duo show with Delphian Gallery and The Other Art Fair in London.
This episode also includes an exclusive interview with Tom Best, the director of The Auction Collective, our auction partner!
EPISODE 4: ANDREW SALGADO
Our fourth episode features Andrew Salgado, one of the UK's leading figurative painters. He has had over 15 sold-out international solo exhibitions in London, New York, and Miami, among others. Andrew has two upcoming solo shows in New York and Tokyo in 2022, with his work being collected in numerous private and public collections world-wide.
Salgado's subjects are depicted in a fantastical, often ominous tableaux: harlequin-like figures, wisps of mysterious smoke, low-hanging moons, and the remnants from a Bohemian celebration are current motifs.

The Hepatitis C Trust is the national charity for people with hepatitis C. It is a patient-led and patient-run organisation; most of its board, staff and volunteers have had hepatitis C themselves. It is committed to eliminating hepatitis C in the UK by 2025. Its strategy is based around pillars of better prevention, increased diagnosis and treatment for all.
It has established strong partnership models of working with substance misuse and homeless service providers across the UK. In substance misuse services, it delivers staff training, peer led education about the importance of testing and availability of new treatments, and personal one-to-one support from initial diagnosis through to treatment. It runs a range of support services, including a confidential national helpline run by staff and trained volunteers who have all had personal experience of living with hepatitis C.
Helpline staff also provide patient-centred responses via email and run a designated prison freephone helpline service for prisoners across the UK. Its policy and parliamentary team works across the UK Parliament and the devolved nations to ensure hepatitis C stays firmly on the political agenda. It also publishes a range of reports and resources on aspects of the hepatitis C care pathway.

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.
