Mobile Art Auction to Help Meri Walker Rebuild Her Life After Home Razed in Oregon, United States

Share

I am delighted to host the First Every Mobile Art Auction and on behalf of Award Winning Mobile Artist, Meri Walker who this week lost her entire home and content to fires in Oregon, United States.

Currently there is a fabulous GoFundMe page organised by members of the mobile photography community which hopes to achieve $50,000. Following an email from Clint Cline, also a Multi Award Winning Mobile Artist, we have initiated his idea to realise the First Ever Mobile Art auction with the proceeds (after costs) going to Meri Walker’s fund.

Clint Cline is a multi award winning mobile artist from Florida, United States.  Cline employs a technique within his painting that embodies religion, storytelling and abstract art. His paintings are powerful, mysterious amalgams of landscapes and unique craggy forms that elicit abstract shapes, symmetrically balancing powerful colour tones. Grounded by the love and support of his family, his faith and mobile art, Cline delves deeper into some projects that he explains, he has ‘long neglected’. The imagery employed has the simplicity of a Shaker chair but the discipline, calmness and originality that radiates from Cline’s paintings, makes for the envy of many an artist.

Clint Cline has recently created three new pieces in his Antithesis series and we have these to auction today until 21 September 2020. Each print is 11″ x 14” (28 x 35 cm) and we are starting the bidding at $25. Once the bidding is complete, each one will be professionally printed by TheAppWhispererPrintSales.com printing laboratory in London, UK and shipped worldwide.

Please help support this initiative of Clint Cline’s to aid Meri as she begins to take stock of her new life.

If you would like to offer any of your own art for this worthy purpose, please get in contact me with directly via email – joannetheappwhisperer@protonmail.com
