About the work

This work is extracting lumps of emotional content from the body and layering paint and drawn responses over an initial lump.

About the artist:

Born 1973 London, Florence Peake lives and works in London. Graduated from Contemporary Performance Making, Brunel University (2009).

Peake is a London-based artist who has been making work since 1995. She makes solo and group performance works intertwined with an extensive visual art practice.

Presenting work internationally and across the UK in galleries, theatres and the public realm, she is known for an approach which is at once sensual and witty, expressive and intimate. 
Peake's practice uses movement, text, film, drawing, painting and sculpture that respond and intercept each other to articulate, extend and push ideas through diverse media. Her work explores notions of materiality and physicality; the body as site and vehicle of protest in relation to energetic and feeling states of being; the erotic and sensual as tools for queering materiality; and the subjective and imagined body as a force equal to our objective flesh bound world.
By encouraging chaotic relationships between the body and material, she creates radical and outlandish performances, creating temporary alliances and micro-communities within the audience. Peake makes large scale paintings using the whole body's physicality, interactive sculpture works, film and text.

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th July.

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.
