Welcome to the World of Spink, Decorated by Ann Carrington
Spink is delighted to present an exhibition by internationally renowned artist Ann Carrington at Spink London’s premises. 'Ka-ching!' exhibition presents a wide range of artworks using objects familiar to us all. Knives, forks, barbed wire, pins, paintbrushes and various other materials come to life to tell evocative stories. We look forward to welcoming you to the world of Spink, decorated by Ann.
It was Ann Carrington’s slant on stamps and coins that first caught the attention of Spink. After an eye-opening visit to the artist’s Margate studio, tucked away in the old rail goods yard, it became clear there was a symbiosis of a global auction house, well-established in collectables and Ann Carrington’s intricate works; a perfect showcase of fine art.
Ann Carrington was commissioned to make The Royal Jubilee Banner for the Queen in celebration of her Diamond Jubilee. Also, she has been helping to raise awareness of current issues through her artwork as a UN ambassador. She has received multiple awards for her contributions to art.
There will be 28 artworks on display in the Spink gallery, starting on 20th September until 31st October 2021. Some of her works will also be presented at Stampex International Stamp Show, London from 29th September to 2nd October.
