House of Voltaire's online store remains open!
The safety of our staff, couriers and supporters remain our primary concern. As a result, delivery and fulfilment times may take longer than normal.
We are currently able to offer delivery via courier to most national and international locations. We will shortly resume delivery via Royal Mail, however there might be a slight delay in fulfilling these orders. We are currently not able to offer collection in person. You can still select this option and we will be in touch when these services resume in the near future. If you have any questions or need something by a particular date, please contact us by email.
All sales directly support Studio Voltaire's artistic and public programmes.

About the artist
Alison Goldfrapp is a British-based artist. She studied fine art at Middlesex University before embarking on a career in music that has spanned more than twenty-five years.
Fine art, music and photography have played an equally vital role in her creative expression. Alison was chosen as the first ‘Performer as Curator’ for The Lowry, Salford for her “remarkable synthesis of music and visual imagery”.
‘Mafic Plait’ is the first of a series of new drawing / painting hybrids that Alison is currently producing at her studio in East London.
Studio Voltaire has been supporting artists for over twenty years, through our renowned programme of exhibitions, performances, events and education projects as well as providing affordable studios.
We have gained a reputation for championing both emerging and underrepresented artistic practices, often at key stage in the artist’s career. These have included Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Phyllida Barlow, Ruth Ewan, Elizabeth Price, Jo Spence, Joanne Tatham & Tom O’Sullivan, Richard Slee and Cathy Wilkes.
The gallery also provides an important UK platform for international artists, often providing them their first-ever presentation in the UK. These have included Nairy Baghramian, Thea Djordjadze, Nicole Eisenman, Judith Hopf, Paulina Olowska and Henrik Olesen.
