About the work

The medium of this work is crayon and pen on construction paper (children’s art materials). This drawing comes out of sculpture sketches turned into narrative scenes of dysfunctional families joined together (like Mahalo shown at Drawing Room in 2018). The ice rink is a frozen lake, and the idea is of a missing or lost woman, such as Ophelia, being trapped under the lake. The black hole contains a portrait of the missing woman. The Christmas candy theme adds cheer.

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.

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.
