As a supporter of the Central St Martin’s Art Auction Picture has framed a number of artists’ works going under the hammer on Friday 2 November.

Hamish Fulton’s Hitch-Hiking Times.  Hamish Fulton was born in 1946 in London. From 1966 to 1968, he studied at St. Martin’s School of Art, London and the following year at the Royal College of Art, London.  Fulton is a conceptual artist and photographer primarily concentrated his work on the experiences in individual walks that he took.  The emotional and physical recollections of his walks, lasting anywhere from one day to many weeks, are displayed as photographs combined with descriptive captions that evoke unique feelings within each viewer. Walking, for Fulton, is about transforming one’s state of mind.  Over the years, walking has also become a form of political protest for him.

is Mark Dunhill’s Component. Mark Dunhill studied at the Central School of Art and Design in London, then Bristol Polytechnic and took an MA in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art in London. He is currently Dean of the School of Art at Central St Martin’s .   He has exhibited widely in the UK and abroad and has been involved in art projects for public spaces as both a consultant and artist. Since 1998 he has been working collaboratively with Tamiko O’Brien. Rooted in the traditions of sculpture, Dunhill and O’Brien’s work is concerned with the tools and procedures of making in which the objects and images produced are governed by process as much, if not more so, than aesthetic decision-making.

Karen Knorr’s The Exodus. Karen, an American, was born in Frankfurt am Main, Germany and finished her education in Paris and London. She is currently Professor of Photography at the University for the Creative Arts at Farnham, Surrey.  Karen is one of the most imaginative photographers at work today, combining a profound sense of place with concerns that range from the sociological to the allegorical.  Her artfully constructed interiors are unexpectedly occupied not by human subjects but by animals, roaming unfettered and free.  The animals can be seen to relate allegorically to fables, which were created to relay social mores and often criticise human behaviour.
