About the work

This drawing was part of a body of work made for a recent exhibition at Somers Gallery, London (this work was not shown). Here is some text that accompanied the exhibition.

‘The blip, the spot, the abyss, the blackout, the shutdown. The miscommunication, the rupture, the pixel, the scar, the floater. It follows around’ *

This drawing was part of a new body of work by Lucy Joyce within which she unapologetically addresses private and collective rupture. Drawings, sculpture and text probe gut responses to turmoil and examine common gestures of despair. Alongside, recent unannounced actions in the public realm are revisited in sketch books and an intermittent performative action.

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.

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.
