Estimate: £15 000 - 20 000

In 2002, Keith Tyson won the Turner Prize for his work which brings together science, philosophy and even computer programming through the visual arts. The 'Geno /Pheno' series features genetic science as the central concept as seen  in this 2004 diptych, which is one of 27. The wonderfully bright and enigmatic series, which also features 18 sculptures, is a fantastic example of Tyson's exploration of chance and origins.

arena-triptych-new Anthony Goicolea (b. 1962), Arena Triptych, 2008
Estimate: £3 000 - 5 000

American artist Anthony Goicolea's repertoire includes drawing, painting, installation, and photography. Goicolea is of Cuban heritage, he explores notions of family history, culture and alienation through all these varying art forms. The triptych above is from his first trip to Cuba in 2008. During the trip he photographed places which his family had once lived. However, each piece is not a direct representation of the space, as Goicolea constructs each image from many and then draws and paints on them in his re-visioning of his own history.

The piece was purchased by the Tate and was part of Tate Britain's 2013 exhibition, 'Ruin Lust', as well as Tate Modern's 2014 exhibition 'Conflict, Time, Photography'.
