About the work

The drawing is inspired by a young fox called Cashew and the experience of looking after her; me and my partner treated and fed her for a little while during lockdown, seeing her fur grow back as she was healing. I think I see this drawing as a close-up of a creature that is wild and vulnerable, slowly regaining strength in an unusually intimate continuum.

About the artist:

Born 1983 Thessaloniki, Fani Parali lives and works in London. Graduated from BA Sculpture at Camberwell College of Arts (2014); and Postgraduate Diploma in Fine Art at Royal Academy Schools (2017).

Parali works across sound, performance, sculpture, painting, large-scale installation, drawing and moving image. Parali's collaborative live practice is focused on the formulation of identity beyond the body's limited presence; creating theatrical encounters in which sound and form are choreographed to create immersive and intimate scenes of habitation, directed movement and ethereal soundscapes.

Selected solo and group exhibitions include AONYX and DREPAN & THE MINDERS OF THE WARM, Southwark Park Galleries, London (2020); The Terrace of Lungs, Zabludowicz Collection, London (2019); Hyper Mesh, Assembly Point, London (2019); Arc, Herrick Gallery, London (2018); The Creatures, Chalton Gallery, London (2018); Chumming, The Pipe Factory, part of Glasgow International Festival (2018); Bearing Liability, Strange Cargo Gallery, Folkestone (2017); RA Schools Show 2017, Royal Academy Schools, London (2017); Gender, Identity and Material, Royal Academy of Arts, London (2017); MONO7, Courtyard Theatre, London (2017); Oral Rinse 2, Waterloo Action Centre, London (2016); Dark Water, Southwark Park Galleries, London (2016); and A COOL DRINK TO CHEEK, Plazaplaza, London (2014).

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th 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.
