What is the Own Art scheme?

At Electric Gallery we believe art should be accessible to everyone. As a member of the Own Art Scheme (backed by Arts Council England), we offer a 0% finance option to our UK customers, for most of the artworks we sell.

With Own Art you can spread the cost of the art you love, over 10 months. You can choose to finance all or just part of your purchase and multiple works can be bought with one loan. You don’t have to pay a deposit and - best of all - you can take your art home with you straight away!

Once you’ve found the artwork that you want to buy, just let us know that you’d like to apply for an Own Art loan to finance your purchase. All you will need is proof of residence and signature (for example, a driving license). The application process typically takes around 10 minutes.

Backed by Art Council England
Own Art is a fantastic scheme backed by Art Council England, with 0% finance loans provided by Hitachi Capital Finance. Many of the leading art galleries in Britain are members of the scheme.

Your Own Art Options
If the total value of your Own Art eligible artworks at checkout is between £100 and £25,000, you'll be offered the option to apply for a 0% finance loan through Hitachi Capital Finance and spread the cost over 10 months.

To apply, simply complete the application process at checkout or call us and we'll arrange your finance application for you. Just phone 020 8064 1887 or send an email to hello@electricgallery.co.uk.

About the Artist – Kavel Rafferty

I am a multi-disciplinary artist, working in collage and assemblage art. In my work I examine the possibilities available when using found materials, such as old magazines, postcards and other appropriated images. There is value and beauty in this discarded stuff, and a frugal and relevant way of working in a time of mass production and waste. I mix abstract shapes, redact, edit and censor the photographs and text to create new stories about form, negative and positive space, women, masks (real and imagined) and sapphism. This work uses subtle visual tricks to make the viewer look again. My work has a slight tinge of nostalgia, because of the use of time-worn, second-hand acquisitions. I love a happy accident and want this spontaneity and unplanned nature to show in my work. It is important to me to acknowledge these ‘mistakes’. Creating order from the chaos. I am interested in exploring palimpsests, layers and the patina of aged elements; working with authentic materials is integral to my work. What I discover, whether at a flea market in Mexico City or on the streets of Margate, dictates what I make, that day or that week. These ‘finds’ can include anything from old porno mags and cookery books, to gardening publications and knitting pamphlets. These gathered materials are then examined, altered and combined to form a new image, a new narrative. I am looking at what is removed and what remains once an image is doctored, the text is removed or sections are cut — adding and subtracting until I have something I am happy with aesthetically. I look to compose something new and unexpected from what is left behind. I play with the original, using what is hidden and exposed to create intrigue. My work is an ongoing exploration of all these materials and tropes.
