E17 For Sale

E17 For Sale – a print edition created for E17 Art Trail 2014.

Limited edition archival print. Pigment ink on rag paper. Hand-finished with 23ct gold leaf.

A small sample of the estate agents currently operating on a single street (Hoe Street, where the gallery is situated) are piled on top of each other in apparently identical buildings. The ground below them is gilded with 23ct gold, as is the sign on top stating that the entirety is “for sale” – as, of course, is the work itself.

This is a social commentary on the London housing market back in 2014 and its impact on the Walthamstow area, and the artists who at the time were renting in this previously affordable area of London.

Limited edition prints available at E17 Art House or via the contact page on this website.
