Selling art online

I sold two paintings last week! This is a record number for me. I have one packaged according to Saatchi’s policy: completely wrapped in acid free tissue, bubble wrap, and cardboard. The other painting is to a local person so no bubblewrap. I have printed a lovely certificate of authentication for each.

I must admit it feels great to sell a painting to a total stranger. I wish I could sell more. My inventory is heaped. I want to poll the buyer and ask why and how? Why did she choose the work? What about the piece spoke to her? Is it wrong to ask for data? And what should I ask? I think I will try to come up with an online poll to send to buyers. Not that the results will change my art process but It might change my selling process.

LOOK! It sold.

Thank you for your feedback.

My best,
Emily Warren

Remember Reflect Reform In this work, I have been exploring phenomena of memory augmentation. I experimented with reflections and cinematic images by juxtaposing photographs, paint, wood, and mylar. The direction of the work includes painting intimate, reflective, observations of augmented memories.  I began by building a cabinet of curiosities as a way to form a tableau painting and experiment with different media. Inspired by the relief paintings by artist Sally Han, I built a model of a Victorian cabinet using tenets of Darwin's theory of evolution. I painted on a variety of surfaces including wood, photographs, and adding raw lumber to the pieces. In this process, I disassembled the cabinet to give autonomy to each piece. Although I diverted from the original idea of a final installation, there was an impulse to paint larger. Adding mylar was yet another way to accentuate reflection as a part of the critical dialogue with the work. The final result offers an opportunity to remember, reflect, and reform.
