About the work

Originating as an everyday practice in the studio, the drawings’ interwoven elements amount to form enigmatic yet impish tensions and exchanges between characters, unfolding as new realms within the page. In turn, the works have initiated a collaborative response in the writings of others, including its original accompanying text by writer Mason Leaver-Yap. Not restricted to one specific medium Aran’s work is often unfolding like a theatrical storyboard that engage the viewer on a psychological-emotional plane and evoke fragments of narrative and suggestion of formed or half-formed characters permitting each observer to create their own narrative. This sense of narrative is “not necessarily the classic notion of a story with a beginning, middle, and end,” as Aran has said, but rather a more open-ended landscape that proposes multiple routes.

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.
