Handmade watercolour and gouache on paper

28 × 19.5 cm


Guide Price: £470

Katy Papineau is an artist based in London who attended the Royal Drawing School after studying philosophy at Bristol University. “Books and poems tend to be the starting points for my paintings. I don’t usually make work about any one specific story. Instead I look for my subjects by pulling together themes from modern literature, fairy tales, art history, mythology and film. I’m interested in female archetypes that persist across time periods and genres of storytelling. I’ve also been thinking a lot recently about clothing and interior decoration as a means of telling a story about oneself.” Katy Papineau was one of the ten artists on the Blue Shop Cottage residency 2021.

Terms and Conditions: Please note all works will be available for collection from Wednesday 17 November 2021 at Freedom from Torture offices, 111 Isledon Road, London N7 7JW. The artwork will be safely stored, free of charge until Friday 17 December 2021. Alternatively, Freedom from Torture can help organise national and international delivery of artworks through a third party, to the winner. The winning bidder will be responsible for all delivery costs and will be invoiced directly by the third party.
