Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
I love making work for Art On A Postcard because the format forces you to address scale and how scale affects decisions, practice and results. The size of work is normally determined by intention, materials, subject matter etc. When you're tied to work within 6" x 4" you have to modify every subsequent decision and process that you would normally rely on to make work and this challenge takes you out of your comfort zone.
Recently, I've been working on a large scale series of paintings from Dungeness beach in Kent. Normally, these vast spaces require a large format. When this is not an option, how do you modify process and method to make it work?
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.
