‘Such a Sad Time’ is a glass fronted cabinet, filled with items made from felt, thread and acrylic by acclaimed artist Lucy Sparrow. From a limited edition of 50, the piece comes with signed certificate of authenticity.

Contemporary artist Lucy Sparrow has taken the art world by storm with her innovative felt displays. With the bright colours and soft tactility of child’s toys, Sparrow’s pieces are instantly emotive and magnetic. Through this naive medium, Sparrow explores human need and desire, with themes ranging from sex, to violence, to consumerism. Her work is not only highly skilled, but filled with reflective depth, captured and contemplated spectacularly through her idiosyncratic use of textiles.

‘Such a Sad Time’ consists of a bathroom-style cabinet, mirrored at the back and filled with recognisable deli goods: from Heinz ketchup bottles to Jif peanut butter jars; tins of corned beef and packets of pasta; mayonnaise and canned chicken, Sparrow’s installation piece is a brilliant comment on commodity culture, transforming everyday consumables into touchable toys. Sparrow’s work is endlessly compelling, in both its brash beauty and its thoughtful complexities: this is contemporary art at its very best.
