About the work

This drawing depicts a Kashmiri weaver working on his loom to create and weave beautiful Kashmiri shawls.

About the artist:

Born 1991 Guelph, Jagdeep Raina lives and works in Guelph. Graduated from BFA Painting, Major in English Literature, Western University, London (2013); Brown University, Art After India Graduate Seminar, Providence (2015); MFA Painting, Rhode Island School of Design, Providence (2016).

In his work, Raina engages with personal and public archives to examine histories of transnational migration by considering them in the context of fluctuating infrastructures of power. Raina’s practice works to conceptually disrupt this fixity and recover heterogeneity. In doing so, the artist reactivates the archive to reveal hierarchies of power that play out across class, gender, caste, race and geography.

Selected solo exhibitions include Jagdeep Raina, Memories Gave Birth to Hope, Part Two, Cooper Cole, Toronto and Soft Opening, London (2021); Blaffer Art Museum, Houston (2021); Memories gave birth to hope, Soft Opening, London (2020-2021); i promise, Cooper Cole, Toronto (2019); Daytimers, Midway Contemporary, Minneapolis (2019); Chase, Art Gallery Of Guelph (2019 –2021); and Jagdeep Raina, Grice Bench, Los Angeles (2017).

And Yet Here We Are Again

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.
