A number of Artimage artists have donated their work to a fundraising auction in aid of DACS Foundation. The new charitable organisation will provide vital support for the visual arts in the UK, through funding, education, research and a public programme.
Artimage talks to Richard Wentworth about Agora, his site-specific work covering the entire floor area of a car park roof in Peckham, London - also home to pop-up bar Frank’s Café. Commissioned by Bold Tendencies, Agora is open to the public until 27 September 2015.
High-res images of important artworks in the National Galleries of Scotland Collection are now available to license from Artimage. They include works by major Scottish artists Joan Eardley and William Turnbull, as well as other British artists including Patrick Caulfield and Sir Terry Frost.
Artimage recently licensed the use of three Tracey Emin artworks in the BBC Four arts documentary, What Do Artists Do All Day?. The programme follows Tracey Emin at work in her studio as she prepares for her latest exhibition at the Leopold Museum in Vienna.
Nicholas Sinclair describes his experience photographing the revered painter, Frank Auerbach. One of the most important artists of his generation, Frank Auerbach is the subject of two major retrospectives in Germany and the UK, opening in 2015. Nicholas Sinclair’s portraits are available to license from Artimage.
Artimage has recently worked with Tate St Ives to license images by Liliane Lijn for the promotional materials for Images Moving Out Onto Space. The exhibition looks at how abstraction can move us, and explores the work of eight artists who investigate ideas of perception and form through light, colour and movement.
