About the work

Drawing no.30, from the Crafted Division series, reflects thoughts on the characteristic industrial origins of Manchester where I worked and lived for nearly a decade. The materials, carbon (graphite) and cotton (drawing surface), have been among the materials processed at industrial units since the beginnings of the industrial era (era of automation), while the motifs resemble the textile structures. This particular drawing series enabled me to handle natural materials, such as carbon and cotton, and observe their fine and particular relations to cultural concepts such as the repetition of manual labour and gendered labour.

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.
