Tracey Emin - My Favourite Little Bird
Our latest Tracey Emin offering is another in her neon sign series. This is a rare piece as it's never been taken out of its original tube packaging and is a great opportunity for a collector. "My Favourite Little Bird" merges of two Emin's signatures: neon and birds. This vibrant bird was crafted in neon using lines to mirror Emin own hand-drawn sketches. This lithograph captures the neon-blue bird on a branch sculpture she created in 2010 for the façade of London’s Foundling Museum. To her, the bird is a metaphor for rising above one's troubles, representing flight and freedom.

Christine Hodson - White Cliffs Walk
It's been a while since we've had a new Christine Hodson cliffs painting in the gallery. It's not only one of her most detailed and accomplished work yet, this one is a striking size and captures the grandeur of the landscape along this stretch of coast.
