Lot90: Simon North

Loose Bar Vienna, 2015
Acrylic on canvas, rolled canvas unframed

Artist Statement: I am continuously searching the world for inspiration and discover it in the most unlikely places. Grabbing my subconscious with strange thoughts and images. I endeavor to turn these into creative works in various media. Once I begin to create, the imagination takes a walk with me into the unknown holding my hand as we progress on our mutual journey. I am privileged to be able to donate this work of the Loose Bar in Vienna to the Art4Grenfell art auction.

Lot68: Virna Pasquinelli


The Knife Thrower, 2013

Wire, Tulle, Laser cut acrylic mirror and Swarowski, 36cmx30cm without head 64cmx30cm with head
Artist Statement: With my work I want to represent a government that like a reckless, myopic, unexperienced knife thrower has failed, betrayed and killed its people. A government that has lost its focus. The panels symbolise the one used on the Grenfell tower. Showing the gap between the rich and the poor: The poor are invisible, marginalised and are being killed because of austerity and the rich can only see the fragmented reflection of themselves and the distorted reflection of this society.

Lot73: Olivia Hicks


Chamber, 2014

Pen and Ink on paper, 59 x 70 cm, framed


Artist Statement: My practice is focused on the relationships between drawing, painting and sculpture and draws from architectural theory to explore the permeability’s between the body, complex emotional states and architectural spaces. I am interested in the sculptural idea of the room as a container or vessel which objects and emotions can pour in and out of, and drain leak or overflow. My work is often influenced by a complex mixture of literature, architectural theory and politics. The skin can be visualised as an architectural membrane that holds us together. The fetish like objects and drawings that I make inhabit a dark architectural space that uses ideas of “apotropaic” (protective) folklore that can defend, protect and constrain the body.
