Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
These four new works were made specifically for Art On A Postcard using painted cardboard packaging off-cuts. Playing with themes around up-cycling, sustainability and reconstruction, fragments of cartoon motifs from previous paintings are recycled and reused. These are painted onto cardboard panels which are built from off-cuts of already recycled packaging material from previous artworks. This material, the detritus of our over-consuming, post lock-down lives carries fragmented cartoon imagery evoking our communal senses of over-exposure, bewilderment and anxiety about the many crises of the contemporary 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. Anyone found doing so will be subject to legal action.
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.
