About the work

This drawing is part of an ongoing series of posters for future performances.
Drawing is always an important part of the preparatory process whilst planning my performances; there is freedom and scope for ambition within it and as I sometimes have ideas that may be difficult (or impossible) to manifest in real life, these posters can host these ideas and the notion that they are indeed possible.
The child here is my son Zephyr and his ‘defiant ride’ is a comment on the complex interdependence between parents and children and the need for the future generations to break from and sometimes rebel against what they have inherited by us.
It is also a reminder of our collective responsibility towards all children and the world they live in.
The steel moon, steel wind and theatre light tracks are all elements of my bigger-than-me human attempt to build worlds of possibilities.

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.
