‘Not for Love’ SERIES – £50
Vending code: a3
“NOT FOR LOVE” is Anna’s latest chromatic provocation. A refused love that ironically penetrates all her work, a love that in its absence becomes the leitmotiv of her artistic proposal. Sought, and, we believe, found but refused in its stereotypical forms. Bright colours and contrasts are the ideal background of her reflections, as if thoughts and especially emotions translated into superimpositions while her word and feelings meet the light of her brush strokes, which are sometimes nervous and sometimes full of a love that was found, refused and always sought.
Anna vibrant expressionist style has been very much a result of her experience of living and working as an artist in the heart of the world most stimulating metropolis as London and New York.
‘Studio Collage’ – £20
Vending code: a4
Archie Proudfoot is an artist and sign painter whose work utilizes the techniques and the aesthetics of traditional signage to explore our relationship with language. Having graduating from studying a degree in English Literature Archie went in search of work that would satisfy a dormant sense of craftsmanship. After discovering the artistry of sign painting he found a skill that could be honed over a lifetime of work. He now splits his time between creating bespoke signage for businesses across London and creating his own personal pieces.
The opulent technique of reverse-glass gilding has come to dominate. Archie often chooses to isolate and reify a single word or phrase in the grandeur of gold, examining our emotional response to it, as well as the geometry and physical interplay of the letterforms themselves.

'Tea' – £25
Vending code: B7
Tea. As good a symbol for British national identity as any, and yet it’s not even “from here”. Gently caffeinated, brewed languidly on the side while we do the crossword - it’s everything its high powered, shrieking cousin coffee is not. We’ve fought wars over tea, launched political movements, imported it cheerfully from overseas for centuries. When the going gets tough “putting the kettle on” is the national response.
In this playful piece, London artist Dosa explores our national identity through the medium of our national drink. Can the stoic, sensible teapot be a symbol for “us” as opposed to “them”? And if so, what’s happened to its gentle, sociable nature in the current public mood? In our fervour to defend our values above all else, have we let go of the values themselves?
