About the work

At this time in history when we were imprisoned because of COVID, I was particularly interested in analyzing interior environments. Within these interiors I depicted Malevich with his black square, a Russian icon, and a work by John Giorno. At a time when I no longer had any perception of life outside the walls, I was trying to cling to my identity, my history, and my education. I was trying to hold on to art, my life. I was anxious about that black square on a black background, I was afraid of losing myself in the resetting of my life, but paradoxically this same square fascinated me and attracted me to it. This is because I saw in it a possibility to question ourselves and create a new beginning in a sort of new renaissance, with new contents and new forms.

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.
