ARTIST INFO

About  

Kaja Stumpf (b. 1987, Norway) lives and works in London. Her recent work examines memory, self-representation, and the mind-body connection. She explores the idea of selective memory and cognitive bias as a means of self-preservation, and through painting, visualises the rumination of potential scenarios between past and present. Utilising staged images and the photographic family archive, she crops the scene and alter the colours to create a sense of delayed familiarity.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork 

“The work I have donated to the Summer Auction are two close-up crops. One depicts an eye, caught in a flash, making it red. Red eyes are normal in analogue family photos and for me it represents the past. Today all photos are automatically adjusted and corrected, red eyes have gone extinct. 

The other painting is of an ear. It has four earrings, hence the title; 'Four Diamonds', regardless of whether they are real or not, no-one knows. We see what we want to see, and believe what we want to believe.” 

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; all artworks have been generously donated by the artists to raise money for charity. When a work is sold on the secondary market it damages our relationship with the artist and prevents us from fundraising.
