About the work

The window is a useful device for artists. A frame around/onto reality, cropping part of the world. “ Every day I look at the world from my window”. The pane creates a plane, there and not there. It’s a view from my kitchen window in Glasgow. It’s an old flat built in the 1870s and the glass in the windows is old too, with a slight visible wobble when you look through them. I like looking down onto the cricket pitch opposite and the looming mass that is Hyndland primary school. A friend tells me that in an exhibition match in the 1970s West Indian legend Gary Sobers hit a 6 and smashed a classroom window. The first football international was played here in 1872, between Scotland and England. It was a 0-0 draw. The building was being built and since then has seen many deaths, births and no-score draws.

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm (BST) Monday 3rd July, however, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Bid Increments

£50 increments for bids of £300 – £1,000

£100 increments for bids of £1,000 – £2,000

£250 increments for bids of £2,000 – £5,000

£500 increments for bids of £5,000 plus

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
