This week I took time out to pop into my local auction house Summers Place, which is undergoing final prep for their upcoming auction next week. This preview was one with a twist, as acclaimed watercolour artist Alexander Creswell has collaborated with the presitigious auction house to show facsimiles of his best ground-breaking large-scale watercolours in an exciting installation amongst the auction items.
The great thing about seeing his art in this space is that it gives you a chance to appreciate the sheer enormity of the pieces. They are hung in an enticing format creating corridors which lead you through the vast showspace like an old school maze.
Summers Place has a number of awesome pieces up for grabs on May 21st and 23rd. From authentic London street signs, right through to garden sculptures from the sublime to the bizarre. It’s definitely worth a peek and most certainly worth a punt – some of the street signs are from Westminster and are available for sale via sealed bids at quite sensible starting prices. Let’s face it, who doesn’t need a signpost to Edgware Road or the nearest municipal WC in their home?
I pottered around taking oodles of pics so will post a slideshow in a couple of days, but for further info on the forthcoming sale click here. For further info on the very talented Alexander Creswell click here.
