Statement about Work Submitted
My postcard paintings in the IWD auction relate to a wider body of work looking at colour, light and surface, and exploring the relationship between two and three dimensions. This particular body of work began when I was on residency with SÍM, the Association of Icelandic Visual Artists, in 2022, and I started to explore how place, time and latitude relate to and affect natural light and colour. My wider practice is concerned with light and colour; pattern, repetition and line; as well as time, place, mapping and the navigation of space. I often make work in response to particular places, in areas that are perceived from the outside as being remote or isolated – especially the sea, coast, islands and coastal communities.
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.
