About the artist:

Born 1979 Brighton, Kate Lyddon lives and works in London. Graduated from BA Painting and Printmaking, Canterbury Christ Church University, Kent (2001); Postgraduate Diploma, The Royal University of Fine Arts, Stockholm (2005); and MA Fine Art, Chelsea College of Fine Arts, London, (2006).

Lyddon likes nonsensical images which are suggestive of narratives. When she paints, draws, or makes sculpture, she starts with an approach akin to surrealist automatic drawing. As certain objects appear and begin to form, her focus shifts towards the formal. She sees it as a kind of back and forth between herself, the media, and the unfolding image, and slowly she starts to make some kind of sense of it, but not too much. It’s also a back and forth between repellence and seduction, chaos and order. There is a lot of layering, drawing, erasing, and re-drawing within the process.

Lyddon’s works are held in public and private collections including the Zabludowicz Collection, Saatchi Collection, and the Michael I Jacobs collection in New York.

Selected solo and two person exhibitions include Throbwork, (with Angela Maasalu), Tallinn Kunsthalle (2019); Primeval (with John Summers), studio1.1, London (2019); The Big Toe, Galerie d’YS, Brussels (2017); Zabludowicz Collection Invites: Kate Lyddon, Zabludowicz Collection, London (2015); The Mark Tanner Sculpture Award 2014-15, Standpoint Gallery, London (2015); and Lennart Aschenbrenner and Kate Lyddon, Skellefteå Konsthall (2007). Selected group exhibitions include Drawing Biennial 2019, Drawing Room, London (2019); Street Semiotics, Charlie Smith, London (2017); A Splinter in the Sun, Narrative Projects, London (2016); Jerwood Encounters: Suspicion, Jerwood Space, London (2014); Non-Sequitur, Beers Contemporary, London (2014); and Speak, Clown!, Fold Gallery, London (2013).

Awards and residencies include the Mark Tanner Sculpture Award (2014-15); Artist in Residence at Camberwell College of Art in Painting and Ceramics (2011-2012); and Canterbury Christ Church University in Printmaking (2001-2003).

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.
