About the work

This is one of a series of collages made during the 2020 Covid-19 lockdown. NN = New Normal.

About the artist:

Born 1964 Kent, Simon Periton lives and works in Bath and London. Graduated from St Martin’s School of Art, London (1990).

Periton is a British artist living and working in London whose work encompasses painting, sculpture and installation. Marked often by an elaborate and sensuous style, his work reflects influences as diverse as fin de siècle aestheticism, the visual language of punk, cinema, and the occult.  Throughout his career, Periton has developed an idiosyncratic visual language imbued with personal mythology and executed with acute precision. In various publicly commissioned artworks and sculptures, Periton has created outdoor pieces that make special reference to their settings while also showing the artist transmuting aesthetics of his earlier works in an ongoing exploration of naturally occurring forms and experimentations with materiality.

His works are held in private and public collections including the Arts Council, London; the British Council, London; Bronx Museum of the Arts, New York; Channel 4 Television, London; Tate, London; Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York; and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

Selected solo exhibitions include Your War – My Love, Galerie Simpson, Swansea (2018); Resistance is Fertile, Waddesdon Manor (2015); Celestial Agriculture, New Art Centre, Salisbury (2015); The Rose Engine, The Modern Institute, Glasgow (2013); The Asbo Mystery Play and other public works/ The Gild The Lily Files, Sadie Coles HQ, London (2011); and Spirits of Salt, Sadie Coles HQ, London (2009).

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
