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.
Simon Bacon 'Hope'
Simon Bacon was born in 1969 in Essex, U.K. He currently lives and works in Essex. Bacon studied at the London Atelier of Representational Art under Valentina Zlatarova (2011) and completed postgraduate studies at Colchester School of Art (2013). Concerned with an existentialist approach to form, Bacon works predominantly in bronze, exploring the human body’s capacity for movement and perception as well as the process of sculpting as a meditative and expressive act in itself. His work pushes the boundaries of figuration in order to render in bronze something akin to the feeling of the lived experience.
Influenced by his research in Osteopathy and Transpersonal Psychology, Bacon is concerned with both the body and the mind, themes his practice explores through notions of identity construction, individuality, chance and freedom of choice. These ideas are naturally embodied through the sculptor’s process which consists of multiple stages of construction and deconstruction: from the initial unmediated modelling in clay, to the development of a maquette which is reworked and altered many times over prior to casting.
