About the work

The piece is a study for a painting on wood: the result of research into rhythm and pattern.

About the artist:

Born London 1983, Haroun Hayward lives and works in London. He graduated from Nagoya University of Arts; BA (Hons) Fine Art Painting, Brighton University; and MA Fine Art Practice, Goldsmiths University.

Hayward draws inspiration from the iconography of 90’s acid house, in juxtaposition with the classical world, to explore the relationship between ancient and contemporary forms of ritualistic ecstasy. Recent work has begun to include his research into rhythm and pattern in textiles, and the relation to rhythm and pattern in Electronic music.

Building Bridges

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.

£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.
