“‘Uprooted No. 1’ is a panel from a series of six, each with the same title, originally presented as a Hexaptych. It is my interpretation of the plight of displaced people in the world who have been uprooted from their families, homes and countries. Our roots give us life. They give us our identity.”
I donated ‘Uprooted No.3’ to the Bid and Rebuild Auction, taking place at the Saul Hay Gallery in Manchester on 14th March 2019. 100% proceeds going to support the refugee charities ‘Together Now’ and ‘Survivors of Torture Relief Fund’, helping displaced people re-build their lives in the UK. You are welcome to make a bid online in advance of the auction, more details with links can be found at my Blog page, link as follows:
The remaining 5 panels, including this one, will be available to buy directly from this website at my ‘Shop’ immediately following the auction. I will be donating 20% of each sale to the same two charities. I will also be attending the event in person on 14th March, to meet the team and see how I can help support future initiatives.
Each panel measures 37x37x4cm and is presented in a ‘Larson Juhl, ARQ Bari’ black and gold float frame with a foil/paint finish.
