‘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.
Each panel measures 37x37x4cm, Acrylic ink and resin on canvas panel and is presented in a ‘Larson Juhl, ARQ Bari’ black and gold float frame with a foil/paint finish. Each panel is signed and dated on the front and back (copyright 2017). I donated ‘Uprooted No.3’ to the ‘Bid and Rebuild’ Charity art auction taking place on 14th March 2019, Saul Hay Gallery, Manchester M3 4LZ.
100% proceeds of the sale will be donated the two Manchester-based charities supporting refugees to rebuild their lives in the UK: ‘Together Now’ and ‘Survivors of Torture Relief Fund’
The remaining 5 panels will also be availbale to purchase at the time of the auction from my website with 20% of the proceeds from each sale donated to the two Manchester-based charities supporting refugees to rebuild their lives in the UK.
You can support these causes by attending the Art Auction in person on 14th March (free tickets available from ‘Eventbrite’) or by purchasing one of these limited edition panels from my website (available from 14th March). The panels will also be available to buy via Instagram, to be launched on 14th March.
