About the work

Fingers draws its title and form from the oast-house wind-vanes which were part of my childhood landscape in Kent. Fingers have historic motifs and shapes – such as arrows and circles – which are specific to place. Sailing high above the ground and subject to changing wind I see them as signposts to both direction and flux. Fingers continues my fascination with the process, structures and metaphor of growing hops. This drawing is made through a hybrid hand made and digital process of folding, painting, printing and stripping back. The use of carbon paper connects me to my late father who used it when writing poetry.

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.
