About the work

FF (Wig 1) is from a new series of work entitled Actress Archives, which interrogates two of the key themes of my work – performance and ornamentation.

About the artist:

Cathy Lomax lives and works in London. Graduated from BA Fine Art, London Guildhall University (2000); MA Fine Art, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London (2002); PhD Film Studies, Queen Mary, University of London (ongoing).

Lomax’s paintings and installations assimilate the seductive imagery of film, fame and fashion, juxtaposing it with personal narratives and the everyday. Her particular interests are femininity, masquerade and the way that popular culture is constructed, consumed and related to.

Her work is held public and private collections including Soho House, Swindon Museum and Art Gallery, and Priseman Seabrook Collection.

Selected exhibitions include Star Bar, Broadway Cinema, Letchworth (2020); Cathy Lomax: Painting on Paper, Yantai Library and Art Museum (2018); The Blind Spot, Swindon Museum and Art Gallery (2017); American Tan, Dolph, London (2015); Glass Menagerie, B&B Project Space, Folkestone (2011); Vanity Case, Lost in Beauty, London (2008); Girls World, Grey Area, Brighton (2007); and Vignettes, Rosy Wilde, London (2006). Selected group exhibitions include John Lennon’s Not Dead, Vout-O-Reenee’s, London (2020); Dance First Think Later, General Practice, Lincoln (2020); Picture Palace, Transition Gallery, London (2020); Dear Christine, Vane Gallery, Newcastle and touring (2019); Ghost Changing Room, Wimbledon Space, London (2019); The Immaculate Dream, Collyer Bristow Gallery, London (2019); Subject, Cob Gallery, London (2018); and A Gown by Orry-Kelly, Transition Two, London (2018).

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th 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.
