About the work

Through videos, drawings, paintings, and sculptures, Erica Eyres’ work uses found images and narratives to explore the unreliability of autobiography and the artist’s subjective truth. School Play is part of a recent series of drawings based on images taken from school yearbooks. The awkwardness of the two figures is emphasized by the line drawing, while their faces are rendered with more detail to portray their features and expressions. In the background, the play’s set implies a domestic setting, but one that is constructed by the use of fabric to allude to a fictional space.

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.
