Link to purchase the Portfolio will be live at 11am Thursday 5th November 2020 here

Sixteen important UK artists have each made a new signed, limited edition print which they have generously donated to The Help Portfolio, 2020. All profits from the sale of this boxed collection of prints will be donated to sixteen charities, each one selected by the artists involved.

COVID-19 has affected charitable organisations and their users in numerous, unprecedented ways. The charities selected each reflect a cause or organisation that the artists’ feel passionate about. These include larger national bodies, as well as local organisations whose vital work in communities is often overlooked and underfunded.

The edition size of the portfolio is 125 and the special launch price will be £7,500. It will be available from Thursday 5 November 2020 and can be purchased from Jealous Gallery and Print Studio, who have worked with each artist to publish their bespoke artwork.

The works in the portfolio cover a wide range of mediums, themes and imagery, distinctive to each artist. Michael Craig-Martin has created a screenprint depicting gerbera flowers in his characteristic bold, iconic style. Yinka

Shonibare CBE incorporates gold leaf into his print to illustrate a symbolic tulip that sits under the words ‘Thank you’. Sue Arrowsmith's copper leafed print resonates with green ink that changes in the light. Paul Winstanley offers us a lily, a symbol of hope in these strange times. Nicky Hirst's print is taken from her Elemental Works, an ongoing series of found objects and paired pages from books and magazines. Mathew Weir's delicate still life entitled The Watching Hour is brought to life with snippets of glow-in-the-dark ink. Paul Morrison's Night Pond is a debossed version of a signature black and white image and Elizabeth McGill captures an evocative landscape.

Annie Morris, who often draws on the history of art, presents Flower Woman (after Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe). A portrait of the Dali Lama realised in glow-in-the-dark inks by Chris Levine is entitled Compassion. Jake and Dinos Chapman's smiley face is illustrated in glitter in three different colours. Idris Khan has obscured the notations on a sheet of music with densely applied areas of blue to make a work entitled Four Bar Rhythm and Paul McDevitt presents an interpretation of a brick wall. Abstract compositions exploring line and colour are realised in signature works by Ian Davenport and No consequence by Remi Rough is printed directly onto plywood.

The collection of prints is presented in a portfolio box, featuring a cover designed by the iconic British graphic

designer Margaret Calvert. Best known for designing the UK’s road signing system, Calvert designed the Help logo, which also appears as a print in the portfolio.

The collective spirit of the artists working together mirrors the conception of The Help Portfolio. The idea of sixteen artists and sixteen charities was conceived and developed during the 2020 COVID-19 lockdown by artist Sue Arrowsmith, collector Christian Mathews, Director of Jealous Gallery and Print Studio Dario Illari and Director of Cristea Roberts Gallery, David Cleaton-Roberts.
