with guest curators Hector Campbell (Soup) and Susan Davis (Art City Works)

Private View 2 July The Bomb Factory Gallery, Chelsea

Art on a Postcard (AOAP) is thrilled to have two influential curators, Hector Campbell and Susan Davis, who have curated a remarkable collection for our summer auction. Hector Campbell, an Art Historian, writer, and co-founder of Soup Gallery, has brought in a selection of cutting-edge contemporary artists, many of whom are making their AOAP debut. Our second curator, Susan Davis, has connected galleries, artists and collectors with her Art City Works( ACW) initiative, making art more accessible, championing emerging artists and promoting charitable initiatives. And as with all our auctions, Art on a Postcard has also curated a superb selection of current international artists.

The money raised will support The Hepatitis C Trust’s program to improve prison health, including increasing screening and treatment rates for viruses such as hepatitis C, hepatitis B, and HIV. The Trust has worked in prisons for over a decade, tested over 46,000 people, and engaged almost 150,000 in outreach and education programs since 2019. Expanding the program to support wider health, including preventing heart disease and cancer, is a crucial priority for 2024.

Hector’s highlights include rising star George Rouy, who recently featured in Hauser and Wirth’s major show,Present Tense, which showcased the best of upcoming British contemporary art. Mallorcan artist Gori Mora delves into how technology and social media shape and intensify love, sexual desire, and queerness. Italian artist Nina Silverberg hones in on everyday objects–from books to furniture–to explore where our inner and outer worlds meet.

Special mention from Susan’s auction goes to British/Nigerian artist Kemi Onabulé, whose work reflects the current state of the world, marked by economic instability, environmental degradation, and shifts in societal norms.Vermont-bornGenevieve Cohen who ‘has said my paintings acknowledge and reflect a world where female power is derived from collaboration, self-endowed agency and connection with the natural world’. Since his debut solo presentation at Patrick Davies Contemporary Art in 2021, British artist Will Fice has gained recognition as a promising emerging artist to watch.

Art on a Postcard’s roster includes American artistJeremy Olson, who currently has a show at Unit, London. Rebekah Rubalcava who is a self-taught oil painter. Her art probes her subconscious dream world, revealing personal symbolism, intrusive thoughts, romanticised experiences, and highly emotional narratives. Almine Rech represented artistJohnMcAllister, for whom the influences of French masters such as Matisse, Bonnard, or Braque during his fauvist period reveal his obsession with the spectral qualities of light and its capture. Lastly, Jennifer Lee creates lifelike paintings based on images she finds online, transforming everyday objects into emotionally evocative works of art.

"I am delighted to be collaborating with Gemma and the team at Art on a Postcard for their upcoming summer auction. I have long been a fan of the organisation and the excellent work they do to support not only The Hepatitis C Trust but also the national artistic ecosystem more broadly. It has been a pleasure to bring together a group of artists and friends to contribute to the upcoming auction, many of whom are working with Art on a Postcard for the first time." - Hector Campbell
