About the work

Peaches 2021 is a drawing made in pastel on very fine hot-pressed paper. The pink colour is partly derived from the colour of the peaches but it is a colour I have often used for drawing. The colour has a subliminal glow and drawings made with it emerge in the paper very slowly, like objects in mist inviting a close inspection of the surface and of the texture of the paper. I like the correspondence between definition and suggestion, of course it is all suggestion – but how little suggestion is needed to allow the work to be completed – to be stated clearly and yet to allow interpretation and invention on the part of the viewer?

From This To That

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.
