Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
The four postcards I have submitted are all derived from various view points along the north Cornish coast near Boscastle, a place which has been a long-standing source of inspiration for my work. It is a grandly beautiful and dramatically contorted landscape, where the natural crook of the harbour is almost enclosed by the precipitous forms of the dark slate cliffs and inlets of deep turquoise sea.
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.
