The piece must be displayed in a very specific manner at the insistance of the Artist.

It comprises three identical prints forming a Tiptych. The elements representing Past, Present and Future.

These three elements are to be hung and displayed facing the wall. Members of the public and members of the gallery staff must never see the front of the piece. The Artist will supervise the installation to ensure this is the case.

It can be seen that the elements combine to make a four part Triptych comprising Past, Present, Future and Never.

The Artist will accept offers for the work by private bid.

Snaartworks.
Pete, I knew I could rely upon you to make a suitable acceptance speech. I love the bit about hanging the works face against the wall!

Brilliant!

Great suggestion.

In the light of one certain 'Woman in the Woods' image that was posted by an entrant to this competition, I'm just a touch worried that when the gutter press read this suggestion that they will believe this Forum to be a den of iniquity, a veritable sodom and gomorrah, nay even a place of debauchery. Woe is eye's, for nowt worse than the front page of the ye olde Dailie Fail will befall me.

Oh well, here comes the van with triangular wheels . . . oh sorry, it's actually the Christies Fine Art Auctioneers van come for my artwork!

Regards
Chris

I accept it will be tough, but I'm convinced we are up to the challenge of taking on:
