About the work

Lilah Fowler is British-Japanese artist based in London. Moving between digital, analogue and organic methods, from hand-weaving and ceramics to algal growths and bespoke image-generating software, Fowler’s artwork draws on issues of landscape and infrastructure to create a deeper understanding of the geopolitics of our hyper-landscape. In sculptural-led installations that incorporate textile, clay, found object, film and sound, often influenced by collaborations or conversations with researchers from other disciplines, her work explores the potential for abstraction inherent in any medium, and the possibilities of translation between materials along the spectrum from plastic to pixel.

The collage is part of a series drawing on depictions of desert landscapes, as a space that embodies many of the raw conceptions of both untouched nature and hidden technologies – such as solar, wind, and data farms – using colour and pattern to highlight and change its features.

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

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.
