Lot 3 - Suhaylah H. - Flight of Fancy
Acrylic, gouache and pencil on paper
Signed on Verso
Suhaylah is a compulsive note-taker in many forms – writing, sketching, collecting objects, recording sounds, and images – a practice which combined itself quite naturally with a love of walking and hiking since childhood. To Suhaylah, making art is an extension of this. Studying both Environmental Geography and Comparative Literature at university created a greater curiosity for these already deeply ruminative practices, steeped in symbolism.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
‘Flight of Fancy' is an idea soaring to be realised, emerging from an uncertain place (maybe even punching above its weight), but powered by a bounty of inspiration and desire.
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.
