Original collage on paper

29.7 x 21 cm


I do love a good headline, and for some reason I took a liking to ‘This is not a hoax’, which I found in a British newspaper. I can’t remember the details of the associated story, and in this context, I don’t think it really matters. Placed beneath an abstract arrangement of colours and shapes, the text encourages decodification and implies meaning – for me, I imagine an alien spaceship hovering in the sky, maybe because the word hoax is often linked with UFO sightings… What does it make you think of?

General information

Web images: Every care has been taken to ensure a faithful reproduction of the original artwork and where possible I upload high resolution scans. However, some variations may occur when viewing online. If you have any questions about the image please do not hesitate to contact me.

Framing: Most of the work listed is unframed. If you would like to discuss framing options contact me for a quote.

Care: Art is unique and can last a lifetime, and beyond, if cared for properly. I recommend framing with glazing for collages on paper. Do not hang work above radiators as this can cause warping to some frames and dry out the glue used in the making of the collage. Unlike with Gremlins, water will not multiply your artwork, avoid hanging work in damp areas and near water sources; kitchens and bathrooms should be avoided unless you have adequate ventilation. Avoid hanging work in direct sunlight as this will fade the colours and images over time.

Delivery: Postage and packing is free on all orders over £100. Postage and packing for orders under £100 is set at £10 per order. All posted work is sent via a 1st class Royal Mail tracked and recorded service. We will advise you when the work is sent and send you the tracking information once confirmed. You should expect to receive your artwork within 3-5 working days after confirmed purchase. For heavy items, bulk orders and international shipping please contact me in advance to discuss options.
