About the artist:

Born 1966 Lisbon, Jorge Queiroz lives and works in Lisbon. Graduated from MFA School of Visual Arts New York (1999).

The post-symbolic universe of Jorge Queiroz crosses drawing and painting into a diachronic dialogue in which both artistic practices contaminate and influence each other. His self-fictionalized scenarios are not inhabited by any organization or hierarchy, subverting the relationship figure-background or interior-exterior in an intimate and personal imaginary. It has been a constant in his work the absence a narrative linearity. Queiroz has been developing its own universe; an enigmatic, extravagant and even alchemical one.

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.
