Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
King Dick is one of the first pieces of Staffordshire I found smashed in an auction house. I restored the original form and as with all my “brokens “where it is broken, dictates what I can do. The original moulding under his legs was just so, I often wonder if the overworked potters had private jokes when making work in the potteries. We all know a King Dick, there are many political figures at the moment who are.
I have recently started work on a new series of polemic prints, small woodcuts with a knee-jerk expressive narrative. So, this first offering its just Tits, sex always sells.
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.
