Three Things; Treasury – Oxjam Charity Auction

Oxjam art auction

Today we reveal our works for the Heswall Oxjam Charity Art Auction to be held this Sunday (full details on the poster below). Scroll down the page for images of each piece.

Oxjam Heswall 2014

We will be at the silent auction on Sunday ourselves and hope to see as many folk as possible out for this good cause. We have put very low starting bids (under £10) on all our pieces to encourage people to bid. You can see the work of other participating artists here on the Oxjam site.

Kris Heath for Oxjam

Kris worked on his image digitally before laser cutting out of black card and mounting on driftwood with a painted ground.

Detail of laser cut piece

Each individual piece is mounted on the driftwood with a panel pin which Kris has hand painted. The effect up close is pixelated but viewed from further away a smooth image is seen.

Sue Barnes stitched Oxjam work

Sue hand stitched her visual response to the image of a lady carrying water in buckets over her shoulder.

Laura laid down a pale blue monoprinted ground before monoprinting her figure in a purple colour.
