About the work

My drawings are highly detailed, intimate works based on film stills. I remove the film still from its context to explore themes of human interaction and emotion. The medium of pencil adds another layer of delicacy. By slowing down something meant to be seen in motion, the image gains its own identity and a whole new story becomes possible. I expand it further by adding or removing small elements, and also making sure every part of the drawing is given the same focus.
This work is a scene that is recognisable in the everyday, a window surrounded by plants, but also manages to be fluid with time as the scene is from a film based in 1815. And, on closer inspection you see a statue in the centre of a window with a headless figure next to it, which suggests it could be both our world and not.

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

£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.
