Lot77: Donna Bayliss

Politricks, 2017

Clay – painted with acrylics and mounted on canvas, ready to be mounted on the wall

Artist Statement: :  “Needing to let out my feelings…this piece was created about a month after the horrific fire at Grenfell…This piece ‘speaks’ my reaction to an event that struck me core-deep…needing to point a finger and peel back the disinformation of statements…of words spoken and insincere emotional gestures made with unmoving lips…staid facial expressions …lives reduced to dust and no acknowledgement of the gifts lost…the talents lost…those who I felt made this whole situation so much worse than it needed to be…human life is merely currency in the world of ‘Politricks’ and the exchange rate reduces with demographic clarity. This piece was inspired by pain…frustration…anger and created by me Donna Bayliss aka. ‘An Accidental Artist’”

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.

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.
