To help alleviate concerns a purchaser may have when buying artwork unseen, we offer a 14-day cooling-off period where artwork has not been viewed in person. Once the artwork has been delivered to the purchaser, the 14-day period begins. During that time, the purchaser has the option to change their mind should the piece not meet their expectations. This does not apply to sculpture or commissioned work and does not apply to overseas purchases, although we are happy to discuss bespoke services.
The artwork will then be returned to the gallery, which can either be by collection or shipped in the same way it was delivered. As long as the artwork is in the same condition that it left the gallery, a full refund is provided to the purchaser, without any penalties being added. Packaging must be kept during this period, so that it can be used for returning the item. Return shipment will be covered by the gallery unless otherwise indicated.
A certificate of authenticity and a valuation certificate is provided with all artwork purchased through NoonPowell Fine Art. The certificate of authenticity may either be an artist’s certificate, where it is signed by the artist, or a gallery certificate where it is signed by the gallery. These are for your records and for the artwork’s provenance.
Gordon Ellis-Brown 'A Day in the Life of Ten Bears'
Gordon Ellis-Brown’s practice oscillates between social and environmental concerns, ranging from ancient history to pop-culture, and sustainability to space science; interests he credits to growing up in a seaside hotel in the 1970s, as well as childhood memories of American Westerns, the Apollo space mission and television tropes of alien visitations. Working with a range of media including paint, found imagery, raw and metallic pigments, photographic collage, resin and wax, Ellis-Brown composes rigorously constructed compositions which recall the aesthetic of advertising or product design.
Through this pop-art approach and inspired by the creativity and spirituality of pre-modern cultures, Ellis-Brown explores humanity’s connection to the natural world, revealing hidden connections between conflicting cultural traditions and belief systems. Often working in diptych format, he creates a dynamic conversation between these seemingly opposed positions as well as between notions of perfection and imperfection, for example the use of pure painted colour and the idiosyncrasies of early printing processes, often revealing hidden connections.
