About the work

This drawing is part of a series I made in 2020. In this work I’m looking to find the uncanny rather than the mysterious. Drawing makes up 90% of what I do in the studio,  revealing questions that I take towards my paintings.

About the artist:

Born London 1967, Danny Rolph lives and works in London. Graduated from MA Painting at Royal College of Art (1993).

Rolph’s triplewall and canvas paintings construct their grammar of signs through material engagement and unprincipled investigations into the history of the ‘pictorial’. Driven by a unique approach to colour he consistently produces compositions with attitude and visual dexterity.

His works are held in public and private collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and Tate, London.

Selected solo exhibitions include The Orchard, Barbara Davis Gallery, Houston (2019); Jerriais, CCA galleries, Jersey (2019); WCW, 532gallery, New York (2018); Encounters, CCA Galleries, Jersey (2017); Painted on the sky, Barbara Davis Gallery, Houston (2016); Recollection, 532gallery, New York (2015); Atelier, E.S.A.D., Valence (2013); Ten minutes from now, Eden Rock Gallery, St.Barths (2011); Brasilia, Koraalberg Gallery, Antwerp (2010); Simultaneous Dreams, AR/ Contemporary, Milan (2009); There is no such thing as pure, Hales Gallery, London (2006); Rutherford, Newlyn Art Gallery (2005); and Locations, Chapter, Cardiff (2002). Selected group exhibitions include where we are, Ambulatory Mercers Hall, London (2020); Vision X, Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin (2019); Purifications, Aeroplastics, Brussels (2017); Then for now, Delfina Foundation, London (2015); Inside the Palace, Kevin Kavanagh Gallery, Dublin  (2014); London-Berlin, Galerie Fruehsorge, Berlin (2011); Collage, Bloomberg Space, London (2004); New British Painting, John Hansard Gallery, Southampton (2003); √-1, Kontainer, Los Angeles (2003); Miniature, Kybidou Gallery, Tokyo (2003); and John Moores 22, Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool (2002).

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.

£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.
