In My Back Yard Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists have found themselves without work and exhibitions and sales have disappeared. In an attempt to help alleviate some of this stress, artists are committing to the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE #artistsupportpledge
The concept is a simple one. You post images of your work you are willing to sell for no more than £200 each. Every time you reach £1000 of sales you pledge to buy another artist’s work for £200. This creates a dynamic culture and market, where all can contribute, whatever their level of success. This is a culture dependent on the honesty and generosity of our artistic communities at every level.
I have decided to temporarily make IN MY BACK YARD, my original works on tea bags with fabric and stitch, available online in support of the #artistsupportpledge initiative. These are wall hangings that were inspired by the flora and fauna in the wild land around us, and so appropriate to offer during lockdown where this land is now my quaranteen.
I pledge that if I reach £1000 in sales, I will purchase a work by another artist for £200.
See below the work currently available and please follow the #artistsupportpledge on Instagram to see work by the many other participating artists.
