A Slice Of Cheesecake

A very small, six-year-old work of mine, I Love Cheesecake (Resized For Easy Consumption), painted in enamel on board in 2002, is being sold at auction through Deutscher-Menzies in Sydney, in the last week of September. The work can be viewed at the auction house's show rooms in Melbourne, at 1140 Malvern Rd, Malvern, from the 11th to the 14th September, and in Sydney, at 12 Todman Ave, Kensington, from the 18th to 23rd September.
The signed work is just 40cms by 50cms, and was first sold for around $A1,500. However, another Resized For Easy Consumption work, of exactly the same dimensions, was sold through Lawson-Menzies in Sydney, in March this year, for $A6,600.
Two much larger (100cms x 150cms) enamel on board versions of this work exist, in different colours. One was recently valued at over $A18,500. Another is currently seeking a new home. Two other of my enamel works at this larger size sold at Christie's in London for over $A23,000 in December, last year.

That cheesecake is so beautiful, artfully, deliciously, luminously gorgeous. That will sell for a fortune in Sydney.

hi hazel, i really like and appreciate your art. colorful sensual and erotic and magnetic.
i'm an artist too (as you can see in my blogs and in my websites).
i'd like to collaborate with you.
my idea is to make a "porno" video animation with your and my artworks and with my music.
are you interested?
