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.
Lorraine Thorne 'Golden Tree'
Lorraine Thorne’s practice extends across painting, works on paper and printmaking, through which she explores the collision between ancient landscapes and modern telecommunications. Often concerned with the invasive presence of technology within the natural world, Thorne’s vocabulary of geometric grids and organic abstracted forms evoke the perpetual web of invisible communication networks that haunt our airways. Working with layers of acrylic, gesso, graphite, and gold and copper leaf, Thorne constructs a visceral response to these invisible scars on the landscape, juxtaposing marks indicative of ploughed fields, water and cloud formations, with line-work redolent of electrical circuitry and satellite transmissions. Unseen and seemingly unknowable, Thorne’s work visualises the ‘invisible threads of communication’ which surround us daily. Distorting perceptions of depth, perspective and colour relations, and drawing from both contemporary idioms and pre-modern traditions, Thorne’s practice emerges from an intuitive personal dialogue around the primacy of nature and the rural heritage of the developed world.
