Bromley collection part two for country auction goers
Author: Richard Brewster | Posted: 28th July, 2016
Part two of artist David Bromley and his fashion designer wife Yuge’s collections will be auctioned from 12pm Sunday July 31 at 39 East Street, Daylesford.
Collection two is wide ranging and in many cases off beat – and once again demonstrates their diverse collecting life together.
“Our intention is to bring magic into the everyday,” writes David Bromley in the catalogue introduction.
“What rules our world is our mutual obsession for collecting, decorating and injecting engaging narratives into spatial context.”
The Daylesford auction contains many interesting items including a pair of life size fibreglass lions, an impressive cast iron Indian gate with circular motifs and a formalist metal sculpture mounted on a plinth.
Auction goers should be interested in the pair of Edwardian chairs with Bromley’s artistic efforts painted on the upholstery and a steel modernist style cubic sculpture on a concrete plinth.
Bromley’s Real Pirates I acrylic on canvas is worth a look along with his Horses acrylic and metal leaf on canvas and Now and Then 3 paper and mixed media collage – along with Melinda Harper’s Untitled and Matthew Johnson’s Untitled 2005.
Unusual are the two works both titled Four Plaster Face Motifs in the Style of Fornesetti (lots 106 and 107).
