Founder and Director of The Bomb Factory Foundation, Pallas Citroen is a multi-media artist whose work is primarily concerned with seduction within the visual space. She is preoccupied with surfaces and facades and imbuing additional or contrary seductive layers in and on to materials of quality or economy. Influences include film sets and spaces of entertainment. She draws inspiration from the idea of escapism and transportation from the everyday. Poor quality materials from pound shops and markets are employed, transforming materials that parade as glitz and glamour. These materials represent a value system endemic and popular, affordable kitsch, a contemporary decadence, as well as an inequality in the consuming population.
Please do not bid on artwork in our Art on a Postcard auctions if you intend on selling the artwork after you have purchased it. This auction has been organised for charity and all artworks have been generously donated by the artists to raise money for the Hepatitis C Trust. When the work produced for the charity is sold on the secondary market it damages our relationship with the artist and prevents us from fundraising.
