Welcome to the 2018 Belladonna* auction!
Note: We’ve discovered that PayPal’s “Buy It Now” button is temperamental. In order to “buy it now” please use the regular bidding button, but bid $1 above the “buy it now” price. That seems to do the trick. However, if you’re having any trouble with bidding on an item, please don’t hesitate to send a note to us at belladonna series [at] gmail.com and we can facilitate on the backend. Thanks for supporting Belladonna* Collaborative!
Note about shipping: Free shipping is included on some, but not all, items. If you have questions about shipping costs, please query us before bidding. Most items can also be picked up in person from our studio in Crown Heights.
Cecile Chong, Not Alone, 2017, encaustic and mixed media on ping pong paddle, 10 x 6″.
Cecile Chong is a multimedia artist working in painting, sculpture and installation in which she layers materials, identities and histories. Her work addresses ideas of culture interaction and interpretation, as well as the commonalities humans share both in our relationship to nature and to each other. Inspired by materials as signifiers, she is interested in how we acquire and share culture, and how world cultures now overlap and interact in ways previously inconceivable. With uncertainty looming in everything from our economies to our weather patterns, She’s concerned with the fragility of our civilization despite the universality of its cultural underpinnings. In her work she’s been looking at traditional artifacts and wondering what tangible relics we may leave for future generations and what they may say about who we were and how we lived.
