About the work

Joel Wyllie’s drawings are distinguished by multiple lines that teem, swarm and gather into forms that are significant for the artist. The myriad lines he lays down seem to grow out of the paper and resemble the beauty of the natural world, such as fish scales or the feathers and eyes of birds. Wyllie’s drawings play with illusion and perception and are simultaneously stage sets relating to lived experiences and portals to another, unknowable and unnameable world.

Career Highlights

Wyllie’s work is held in public and private collections including Saatchi Collection, Simmons and Simmons, and Hogan Lovell’s.

Selected exhibitions include:

Drawn Out, Drawing Room, London (2021);

Return to Naught, Kingsgate Project Space, London (2021);

Material Wood, Messum’s Wiltshire, Salisbury (2018).

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.
