Petite Pieces

Curated by Rebecca Gordon

Our Petite Pieces collection brings together a compilation of small, but by no means simple, artwork for sale. Explore a constellation of visionary creations to suit smaller spaces or add to a growing collection. From petite prints and paintings with expansive colour and depth, to subtle drawings and collages which soften and assuage, browse small art by emerging and established artists.

Petite Paintings

On the prowl for something truly original? Abstract expressionist painter Daniela Schweinsberg instils her small paintings with a dynamism to be reckoned with. With bold gestural brushstrokes and palettes to please to the eye (many of which become pieces in themselves), her mixed-media compositions such as Small Treasure #06, a blend of acrylic, oil pastels and charcoal, does not depict but exists as something entirely new and unique.

Abstract paintings by Fintan Whelan demonstrate a masterful interplay of form, texture, shadow and movement. Fintan’s striking multi-textural works exhibit immense clarity and photo-realistic quality. Paintings like Thread of Dreams could be mistaken for aerial photographs of otherworldly coastlines.

Petite Prints

Illustrative screenprints by Clare Halifax take inspiration from traditional textile arts and Victorian designs. With a touch of William Morris, Clare’s high-spirited prints of delicately drawn cityscapes such as Biegal Brick Lane are full of character. It’s no wonder Clare was invited to create a limited edition series for the prestigious V&A Museum.

Of equal acclaim, Mat Cahill plays with abstracted forms, patterns and portraits concerned with ideas around crowd mentality. Delightfully detailed and yet painstakingly constructed (taking as long as 400 hours), Mat’s illustrative drawings - Oh Mummy, can you pick me up? - make for desirable collectables.

Petite Collages

Looking to buy deeply decorative works? Figurative collages by internationally renowned artist Sarah Thomas promise to inject a drop of colour into any interior. Sarah expertly selects and overlays bright magazine cut-outs. Her elaborate configurations of colour combined with disorientating layers of material can be seen in Hands On Hips.

Collage-assemblage artist Micosch Holland fabricates surrealistic mixed-media collages. Often referred to as a hybrid of vintage materials and avant-garde digital technology, Micosch’s style is at once an ode to 20th-century art and a pledge to new-age creative processes. As an example, Durst Und Der Plan III is cleverly poetic with dark undertones. Perfect for buyers in search of visually stimulating graphic art.

Petite Sculptures

Among our small sculptures for sale, you will find miniature ceramic sculptures by Yurim Gough. Korean artist Yurim draws directly onto clay bowls made by her own hand, coupling the sensitively contoured form of the bowl with the unique human form of her model. Though slight, Yurim’s delicate depictions require immense skill and patience.

Christ Mitton reinvents discarded items such as crisp packets, bricks and crushed cans, transforming the mundane and forgotten into memorable marble monuments. His hand-carved stone sculptures such as Fag Packet, Carrara marble with a granite plinth, challenge society’s attachment to transitory pleasures.
