About the work

This drawing was made at the beginning of the body of work for my solo show Soft Logic at Moskowitz Bayse in 2023. It was one of two drawings that were seeds for my first large paintings, and relates to the painting ‘Care’ (2022-23). Drawing is central to my work, but at this time it was serving the vital function of keeping me connected to the place where the work comes from whilst embarking on larger work. The drawings from this period contain the month in their title, as it felt important to acknowledge their connection to the evolution of the paintings.

Herbert received a BA (Hons) in Fine Art and Contemporary Critical Studies from Goldsmiths, London, in 2010, and Postgraduate Diploma in Drawing from the Royal Drawing School, London, in 2018.

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.
