Art on a Postcard Auction – Auction and Preview Tickets

I am excited to let you know I was invited once again to create a new work for the forthcoming Art on a Postcard annual International Women’s Day Auction with all proceeds going to the Hepatitis C Trust.

This year the auction will span two weeks There will be a preview of all the works at Bomb Factory, Covent Garden, where patrons can see all the work collectively in person before placing their bids.

Maps are a cornerstone of my work as an artist. The images and cultural symbols on the banknotes are significant and can give an indication of the history, culture, religion and economy of a given country, and so the idea was that the Money Map could be ‘read’ in more depth than a straightforward political map.

In this UK map there are no political boundaries, no division between the nations. I’ve used strips of international banknotes in colours of red, white and blue, the colours of the Union Jack, so it contains ideas of Patriotism and Nationhood, however these notes come from continental Europe, America, Africa, and Asia, so it is also outward looking and a microcosm of human global migration.

For International Women’s Day I wanted to create a map of International Unity. The idea that whilst we may all be different, our differences need not divide us. I am delighted to let you know that my submission has been selected by Art On a Postcard Founder, Gemma Peppé’s own curated selection alongside sculptor and curator of the 2024 Royal Academy Summer Show, Ann Christopher RA, and a group of other brilliant female artists.
