Curating Christie’s for Classic’s Week

Late last summer I was overjoyed to be asked to contribute to Christie’s Classics week, the biggest week in the Christie’s calendar, by curating my very own space in Antiquities. For weeks, I agonised over what i was going to do. Would it be a domestic setting? Would I create a Cabinet of Curiosities? Then I realised it had been staring me in the face all along. I made up a Rainbow Roman Emperor Intaglio wall, we painted the wall the most sublime ‘Orange Aurora’ colour from the Little Greene Paint Company and I chose the biggest fragments of Roman statues to display in front of it, to create my own little tribute to the British Museum.

Greek Key Frieze Print

Imagery of classical subject matter is a strong theme that runs through Bridie’s work. From using imagery from her vast archive photographs taken at the British Museum emerges a colourful take on an ancient greek key frieze. Image Dimensions: 39cm x 18.5cm. Signed and numbered edition of 50. Giclee print on 310gsm Hahnemükle photo rag paper.
