Notes


“The works in this auction are a product of trying to find some distraction from my struggles during the lockdown this year. The pandemic has been a challenge for all of us and I also lost somebody who was a massive part of my life. Creating these repetitive and laborious works has helped me to steady my thoughts and focus on something productive."

This work is a threaded work on paper sculpture by the artist Demi Overton, a Fine Art graduate from Newcastle University. Overton creates sculptural works on paper which explore the act of drawing and mark-making in their most fundamental form. Through a labour-intensive and repetitive pinpricking action using a single needle, she pushes and tests the materiality and delicacy of the surface. 

“My art is my therapy and these pieces have been vital to my progress.”
