About the work

My artwork is part of an ongoing series of Colour Wheels. They explore the interaction of colour and time using watercolour ink and drawing tools to create limitations. The artworks have a rhythm and flow, which is highlighted by the bleeding lines and fading tones. The watercolours are imaginings for refracted light.

About the artist:

Born 1984 Leeds, Fiona Grady lives and works in London. Graduated from MA Fine Art, Wimbledon College of Art, University of the Arts London (2011); and BA (Hons) Fine Art, Cardiff School of Art and Design, University of Wales Institute, Cardiff (2007).

Grady is a site-responsive artist; her practice explores the expanded field of drawing through wall drawings, lighting gel window installations, digital animation, and works on paper, including ink drawings and prints. Her practice recognizes the relationship between architecture, installation art and decoration; referencing traditional techniques such as fresco painting and stained glass in a contemporary context. Her work is often ephemeral, it interacts with the light of day, to emphasise the passing of time, using geometric motifs and changing patterns.

Her work is held in public collections including Paul Smith Ltd, the Tim Sayer Collection (bequeathed to Hepworth Wakefield), and private collections across Europe, North America and New Zealand.

Selected solo exhibitions include Spectra Waves, University of Brighton (2019); LUX, The Eye Sees, Arles (2019); and Shadow Play Art in the Bar, Chapter Cardiff (2018). Selected group exhibitions include Cure3 Exhibition organised by Art Wise Curators, Bonhams, London (2020); MERRY-GO-ROUND, JGM Gallery, London (2020-21); Dialogues, Flowers Gallery, London (2018); Colour, Order, System, Sid Motion Gallery, London (2017); and A5xn, Dalla Rosa Gallery, London (2017). Public commissions include Natural Triangulations, Walthamstow Wetlands Visitor Centre, London (2017); Kaleidoscope, commissioned by Rosie Glenn + British Land, Broadgate, London (2018); A Glimpse of the East, Watts Gallery Artists’ Village, Guildford (2019); and Art Deco Paradise, Commissioned by K+CAW and Kensington and Chelsea Council, Kensington High Street, London (2020-21).

Awards include selection by the Mark Rothko Memorial Trust to receive a bursary and residency at the Mark Rothko Foundation in Daugavpils, Latvia (2019).

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.

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.
